The Mountain View Mesamorphs were the champions of the 2004 Susquehanna County Envirothon, held May 5 at Camp Archbald. The Forest Freaks from Susquehanna Community School District placed second, by only three points.
The Envirothon gives students the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge of environmental issues. Students work together as a team in a thirty minute per station format and are challenged in the areas of aquatics, forestry, soils, wildlife, and a current environmental issue, which was natural resource management and urban development. Upon completion of testing, all attending enjoyed group interaction and lunch sponsored by Susquehanna County Conservation District.
The Mountain View High Schools win earns them the opportunity to compete in the statewide Envirothon competition to be held May 24 and 25 at the University of Pittsburgh, Johnstown. The state champion will represent PA at the Canon Envirothon. The Canon Envirothon is the worlds largest environmental competition, and is hosted each year by a different state or province. Many Envirothon advisors credit the Envirothon competition as a resource which increases the students interest and eventually pursuing college degrees in various natural resource studies.
