The Chester County Conservation District sponsors this annual environmental educational program with Chester County Facilities and Parks, hosting it at Hibernia County Park.

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.

2023 Envirothon

Congratulations to Owen J Roberts Team A, the 2023 Chester County Envirothon Champions.  

On an overcast day at Hibernia County Park, this team of students showed that they had what it took to win the Senior High School Competition.  Eight Chester County schools comprised of fourteen teams competed in the senior high event.  Donned with orange  t-shirts, these students competed in environmental stations that included knowledge in Aquatics, Wildlife, Soils, Forestry and the Current Issue of Adapting to a Changing Climate.   Owen J Roberts team “A” will move on to compete at the State Envirothon located at Camp Mount Luther in Mifflinburg, PA in just two weeks.   

Over 370 students participated in the two-day in-person Chester County Envirothon.  The elementary teams powered through morning rain showers with 31 teams competing from fourteen schools and the middle schools were represented by 16 teams representing nine schools throughout the county.  

The Chester County Conservation District partnered with the Chester County Parks + Preservation and Chester County Facilities Dept. extends a huge thank you to all of our sponsors and all the many volunteers that help to make this a fun and successful educational event each year.
