Southern Oregon Plans First Envirothon
Even kids who like school will find themselves staring out the window once in a while. They get encouraged to look at the outdoors and really see what's there, in environmental education.
This year several Southern Oregon schools plan to join up for the first-ever Southern Oregon Regional Envirothon. It is modeled after the Oregon Envirothon, which pits teams of students in competition with each other, gathering information about ecosystems and the creatures that occupy them. The Southern Oregon event was scheduled for April 3rd but has been postponed; we get an overview from Karelia Ver Eecke, Caroline Burdick, and Haven Combs.
