Buffalo Homeschooler’s team wins the 2012 Erie County Envirothon! Buffalo Homeschoolers team of talented students will proceed to the New York State Envirothon where they will compete against winning Envirothon teams from counties throughout New York State.
The 2012 Erie County Envirothon was held on May 3rd at Elma Senior Center/Village Green Park. Participating high schools included St. Mary’s School for the Deaf, Grand Island, Orchard Park, East Aurora, Springville-Griffith, and Buffalo Homeschoolers.
Coordinated by the Erie County Soil and Water Conservation District, the Erie County Envirothon is an outdoor, hands-on natural sciences competition that challenges students in the categories of forestry, wildlife, aquatics, soils, and a current issue topic. The Envirothon is held annually and is open to all high schools in Erie County. It is an excellent opportunity for students interested in environmental science to learn from local natural resources professionals as well as to spend a day enjoying the outdoors.
The Erie County Soil and Water Conservation District thanks the many local businesses and organizations whose sponsorship made the 2012 Erie County Envirothon possible. For more information on the Envirothon, contact Melanie J. Saunders, Erie County Envirothon Coordinator, at 652-8480.
