Greenville, OH – Competition was intense at Chenoweth Trails on April 26, 2016, as high school students from southwest Ohio met in the Area IV annual Envirothon. Students were tested on their environmental knowledge in five areas including aquatics, current environmental issues (CEI), forestry, soils and wildlife. The CEI this year focused on invasive species which really hits home with the amount of tree loss southwest Ohio has endured due to the Emerald Ash Borer and the Asian Longhorned Beetle (not to mention the issues with honeysuckle infestations).
CNE and Felicity high schools fielded three teams each for Clermont County.
Sponsorship for the Area IV Envirothon came from Honda of America, Cargill, and the 18 Soil & Water Conservation Districts in Southwest Ohio.
Thank you to all the students, advisors, and administrators from the Clermont schools for their hard work and support of the event.
