The 24th annual Chautauqua County Envirothon was held recently at the Roger Tory Peterson Institute in Jamestown. A beautiful, sunny day allowed 14 schools comprising 27 teams to participate in the event. The teams spent the day answering ecological-based questions focused around the core areas of wildlife, forestry, soils, aquatics and current issues. The Envirothon, an environmental competition for students in grades 9-12, held its first competition in the spring of 1979. New York held its first Envirothon in 1990, and will be celebrating its 25th anniversary next year.
