Welcome to Environmental Club!In Environmental Club, we do a variety of activities focused around being outdoors! I have always loved being outside fishing, hunting, or just hiking around, and I am glad to have an opportunity to share that with students who share that passion.Some of the activities we did this past year were:- Envirothon - A national competition where students learn and study about several environmental categories (aquatics, wildlife, forestry, etc.) and compete against other schools. This is a county competition, but winners move on to the state and national level.- Presentations from the Northumberland County Conservation District - Representatives from the Conservation District come in to teach on a variety of different topics and to do various activities with our club members. (Soil sampling, stream studies, etc.)- Field Trips - Outside of Envirothon, we do other field trips. Our most recent was a trip to the Lescher farm near Klingerstown. Club members learned about where their milk comes from and how dairy farms work. We also did a macroinvertebrate water quality assessment on Schwaben Creek near Himmel's Church Pavilion.This was my first year advising Environmental Club and it was a blast! And as I continue to make contacts, I will be able to plan more cool trips and activities. So come on out, especially if you enjoy the outdoors!Here are some more pictures from our latest trip.
