Congratulations to the 2013
Rhode Island Envirothon winners:
The Wheeler School
Continuing their tradition as an Environmental Education Powerhouse
in Rhode Island, The Wheeler School once again won the RI Envirothon Competition
and will represent Rhode Island in the North American Envirothon,
August 4-9, 2013 at Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana.
Good showing and best of luck!
Throughout the year, students study four broad subjects ("Sections"): Aquatic Ecology, Forestry, Soils/Land Use, and Wildlife, focusing on the Key Points, Learning
Objectives, and other resource materials referenced here or provided. Students are also encouraged to attend any specialized hands-on workshops that RI Envirothon may provide, and are encouraged to seek additional
training from our partner organizations, professionals in the area of study, or other skilled or knowledgeable individuals.
Using the knowledge they have acquired during the year, students, in teams of five, compete against other
teams and schools in the one-day, outdoor RI Envirothon Competition, held in the spring. The winning team becomes eligible to represent Rhode Island in the North American Envirothon competition held during the summer
and, as available, may be offered internships or summer employment with partner agencies.
