The Franklin County Conservation District is proud to host the Envirothon each year for high school students in our area.  This is a great educational field trip for students interested in nature.  Students are asked to accept the natural challenge.  The challenge is to work in teams of five to test their knowledge of environmental and natural resources.  The top ranked team will move on to represent the county at the state competition, where college scholarships can be won.

If your school would like to participate in the 2023 Envirothon, please contact Emily Hartley at 717-264-5499 or by email at [email protected]
