Keene Envirothon team wins fourth place at competition
“The team worked very hard preparing this year and earned an impressive fourth place finish in the 2013 North American Envirothon Competition,” Keene High School teacher and team adviser and coach Marshall Davenson said in an e-mail.
Davenson and Keene High School science department chairwoman Elizabeth Schnackenberg accompanied the team.
To prepare, the team sought help from Cheshire County Conservation District employees Amanda Littleton and Sharlene Beaudry and U.S. Deparment of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service New Hampshire staff member Heidi Konesko, who provided information and resources to the team.At the competition the team was tasked with advising a fictitious family ranch on the use of their rangeland.
The Envirothon challenges have also made him realize that environmental issues that can seem overwhelming, are manageable when one approaches issues at a local level and works to find a solution, he said.
The Envirothon’s mission is to develop knowledgeable, skilled, and dedicated citizens who are willing and prepared to work towards achieving a balance between quality of life and the quality of the environment. Teams are challenged in five natural resource categories such as soils and land use, aquatic ecology, forestry, wildlife, and current environmental issues.
