The 15th annual environmental science competition culminates a full year’s study in the areas of forestry, aquatic ecology, wildlife, and soils and land use. The participants attended workshops conducted by skilled natural resources specialists, combining in-class teaching and hands-on field experience throughout the school year.
Two founding members of Envirothon NB were also recognized at this year’s event. Chris Pitt and Kelly Honeyman were presented with 15-year service awards at Monday’s awards ceremony.
“Both Chris and Kelly have been committed to the Envirothon NB program for a decade and a half now,” says Geneau. “It’s an honour to have them part of the Envirothon NB team, passing their knowledge and passion for environmental sciences on to the next generation.”
