The first Envirothon in Massachusetts began in 1987 and was held on district property, Buck Hill Conservation Center in Spencer, with five participating teams. Today our partnership continues to play an important role for the District. We provide outreach and assistance to Worcester County teams, Supervisors volunteer as judges at the event and our Administrator sits as Treasurer of the Steering Committee.
This years Massachusetts Envirothon event will be held on Friday, May 18th at Blackstone River and Canal Heritage State Park, 287 Oak Street in Uxbridge. To learn more about getting involved or how to form a team, visit https://massenvirothon.org/get-involved/
