Student Events

Conservation Field Day

Every September, 5th and 6th-grade students clue into conservation at the annual Lynn Galusha Memorial Conservation Field Day. Groups of students hike to 6 stations where they learn about exciting topics from the natural resource experts. The essay and poster contests allow students to apply what they learned and detail the topic they feel will best protect Hamilton County's natural resources. Students' hard work is honored at awards ceremonies. Presentations have ranged from invasive species, wetlands, and wilderness survival to groundwater, forestry, and energy conservation.

Check back for information about the 2024 event! 

Hamilton County Envirothon

Since 1992, the District has hosted the Hamilton County Envirothon, an outdoor competition that gives high school students the opportunity to utilize problem-solving techniques, teamwork skills, and knowledge gained during study sessions to complete tests in 5 categories: Soils, Forestry, Wildlife, Aquatics, and Current Issue.

The 2024 event has been canceled due to lack of team participation.
