The Envirothon is a unique and challenging natural resources problem-solving competition for high school students throughout the state. Teams of students are tested on environmental topics such as aquatics, wildlife, soils, forestry and a currant environmental issue. Each year, New Jersey’s winning team becomes our State Representative in the North American Envirothon competition, the largest high school Environmental Education competition.
Participating in the National Envirothon affords students the opportunity to exchange information and experiences with other conservation minded youths from all over North America, as well as gaining New Jersey recognition for its fine Envirothon program.
The Cape Atlantic Conservation District offers grants to participating teams in Atlantic and Cape May counties. In order to aid students in preparing for the Envirothon, three (3) all day training sessions are held throughout the State. Professionals from various environmental fields will present both hands-on and study materials in preparation for the Envirothon competition. Registered teams, as well as other interested students/schools, are welcome.

Registriation for the 2017 Envirothon has begun. This year's environmental issue will be "Agricultural Soil and Water Conservation Stewardship". Landowners who wish to practice stewardship on their lands need to assess the potential negative impact of their management activities on soil and water resources. Good land stewardship not only conserves the natural resources on a farm, ranch or forest, it also provides multiple benefits to local communities.
As in past years, the District is offering five mini grants of $100. The first five participating teams from either Atlantic or Cape May County will be eligible. Three training sessions for interested schools and students will be held throughout the state, one in northern, one in central and one in southern New Jersey. The Cape Atlantic Conservation District will be hosting the southern training session. Registration is required for both the mini grant and training session. Both forms can be downloaded from the links below and on the NJ Envirothon website.
