Welcome to the
2024 IRL Envirothon!
pc: Robbyn Spratt
Envirothon is an outdoor competition encouraging student interest in natural resource conservation and environmental management. It is a field-oriented program in which students, working in teams of five, learn to use critical thinking and communications skills, work as a team, and develop their problem-solving abilities to answer written and oral questions and conduct hands-on investigations in five study areas: aquatic ecology, forestry, soils and land use, wildlife, and a current environmental issue. The IRL competition adds one additional subject area: the ecology of the Indian River Lagoon, Florida, one of the most biodiverse estuaries in the continental United States.
On these pages, you will find all the information you need to form a team and prepare to compete in the IRL Envirothon. We encourage the participation of middle and high school students from Brevard, Indian River, St. Lucie, Martin, and Okeechobee Counties to participate in this unique and fun educational experience.
