Envirothon - Environmental Science Class at Fernald

Envirothon - Environmental Science Class at Fernald

Seton High School’s Environmental Science class recently participated in the 2017 Envirothon at Fernald Nature Preserve. The Ohio Area 4 Envirothon is a competitive, academic, outdoor regional team event for high school students that tests their knowledge in five areas:  Aquatic Ecology, Current Environmental Issues (CEI), Forestry, Soils and Wildlife.

Sarah Telscher ’17 said it was both a great learning experience as well as a team bonding experience.

“At Envirothon there were five different stations that consisted of various environmental issues and topics,” explained Sarah. “Within these stations, we answered a series of questions. I got a lot closer with classmates and learned even more about our environment. It was an awesome experience and I look forward to Seton continuing to take part in this great competition in the future.”
