The 19 annual Delaware Envirothon training workshop will be held on Oct. 12 and Nov. 9.
The first workshop will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Blackbird State Forest, 502 Blackbird Forest Road, Smyrna, and the second training workshop will be held at the University of Delaware Cooperative Extension office, 69 Transportation Circle, Dover.
The Delaware Envirothon provides challenging environmental education and hands-on instruction, correlated to state education standards, to participating teams of high school age students. Throughout the year students learn about the resource topics of aquatic ecology, forestry, soils/land use, wildlife, air quality, and a sixth topic that changes each year.
During the spring competition, which will be held April 10, 2014, students will be tested on their knowledge of the natural resource topics.
The final training workshop will be held Jan. 25, 2014 at the St. Jones Reserve in Dover.
