Pennsylvania Envirothon Program
The Chester County Envirothon is part of the Pennsylvania Envirothon Program, which helps students understand the natural environment and their role in it. The Envirothon provides a means for students to demonstrate what they know about the environment. It is a cumulative process that addresses the learning levels of awareness, knowledge, attitudes, and application. Students who participate in the Envirothon will demonstrate an understanding of environmental concepts, of how human activity impacts the environment, and of how people can work together as partners in conservation practices to enhance their lives and quality of life by protecting the environment.

Announcing the Academy at West Fallowfield Christian School as the overall Champion of the 2021 Chester County Virtual Envirothon
Congratulations to the Academy at West Fallowfield Christian School as the overall first place winners and Champions of the 2021 Chester County Virtual Envirothon. This team will represent Chester County at the Pennsylvania State Virtual Envirothon in May 10 and 11, 2021. Second place went to Conestoga High School and third place was West Chester Bayard Rustin Team B. Each of the eleven teams studied and competed as a team virtually this year and tested in each of the five stations in Aquatics, Forestry, Soils, Wildlife, and the Current Issue of “Water Resources Management: Local Control and Local Solutions.” We are very proud of all of our Chester County Envirothon students as they had to make special concessions and compete virtually this year.
Although we did not have a middle school and elementary level 2021 Envirothon, the Conservation District and the Parks+Preservation Departments are preparing Envirothon learning Videos to be released the week of May 1, 2021. These videos highlight aspects of the five environmental learning stations.
The Chester County Envirothon is sponsored solely by donations and we would like to thank all our sponsors as they have made possible the 2021 Envirothon in this virtual atmosphere. With their donations, we have been able to provide each participating student with a t-shirt, awards, and study materials along with our new video learning programs. We would also like to thank the students and teacher/coaches for their willingness to adapt to this virtual competition and we appreciate all the time and effort that that they made to make this a very successful event.
