The Fred B. Miller, Jr. Regional Envirothon is a problem-solving, natural resource education program for high school students. This annual competition is a field-oriented program in which student teams learn to use critical thinking skills to answer written questions or conduct hands-on investigations about environmental issues.
If you are unfamiliar with the Envirothon, this event isn't new. We are proud to help bring this educational competition to Duval and surrounding counties for more than 20 years with the help of volunteers and agency leaders! If you are a student, parent or teacher interested in this event, we hope you will consider reaching out to us for details. This event is ideal for high school science, environmental science, forestry, agriculture or wildlife courses. Assemble a team of 5-7 students and register today. We will provide you with online guides AND in classroom resource professionals (the earlier you sign up and schedule - the better) to help learn in each of the resource categories.
Learn more about last year's winners on our website or the Duval County Envirothon Facebook page for links and pictures. Registration is $5 per participant, and requires 7 team members and 1 adviser for a total of $40. It includes one boxed lunch per person and access to electronic and in person resources.
