The Erie County Soil and Water Conservation District is hosting the 17th annual Erie County Envirothon. As a member on the board, Legislator John Bruso spent the morning with students at the kick off for this year's competition.
Envirothon is an outdoor-oriented, hands-on natural science competition for high school students. They will work in teams to complete a series of challenges in the subjects of wildlife, forestry, aquatics, soils and a current topic issue. The 2018 topic is "Western Rangeland Management."
The winning team of students at the Erie County Envirothon will advance to the NYS Envirothon which will be held at Hobart & Williamsmith Colleges, there they will compete against other county winners from throughout the state. Good luck to all!
