Unity College to Host Maine Enviriothon
Unity College will host The 2014 Maine Envirothon Forestry & More Training Workshop on March 21, a part of Maine’s high school environmental education competition.
The event is sponsored by The Maine Association of Conservation Districts, Envirothon Committee, and Unity College, in cooperation with The Maine Forest Service. During the workshop, The Maine Forest Service provides in-depth instruction in Tree ID, Map and Compass and Silviculture. Wildlife professionals provide hands-on instruction to prepare students for the Wildlife Station which includes Pelt and Track ID as well as habitat identification and diversity. The March workshop also gives advisors a chance to learn more about the current issue topic and problem statement, and to meet with the lead current issue judges.
