Educational Programs for Teachers and Students



An important part of the mission of the Pulaski Conservation District is to bring both teachers and students together in order to teach and learn from the next generation of people toward the ultimate goal of sustainable lifestyles. Pulaski Conservation District aims to equip both teachers and students with the right knowledge by participating in and presenting various exciting programs suited to the needs of educational institutions.

The District has many options for schools, non-profit groups, and other educational organizations. We will taper a presentation to suit curriculum or will bring one that we have ready. The District also supports and participates in contests such as poster contests, essay contests and the national Envirothon. Other educational opportunities include supplying teachers with conservation education materials or participating in trade shows with an educational focus. Call us and let us know how we can help.

Envirothon's Next Competition: (Area & State) - November 2012; (National)- July 2013

The Envirothon is a multi-level competition for high school age students beginning with the area level, followed by state and then national. Area and state level competitions typically take place in November of each year with the national competition the following summer.

To expose students to diverse environmental issues, ecosystems, and topography, the national Canon Envirothon is hosted in a different location each year. Teams from participating states and Canadian provinces, who have won their state or provincial event, compete for recognition and scholarships by demonstrating their knowledge of environmental science and natural resource management. The teams, each consisting of five members, work to demonstrate their knowledge of environmental science and natural resource management at five training/testing stations. The next national Envirothon competition will be held in Bozeman, Montana in July of 2013. For more information, go to http://www.envirothon.org.
