Forestry Crew members Rhys Brydon-Williams and Sarah Jamison assisted Forest Manager Shawn Swartz in educating two teams of middle and high school students who competed in the local Envirothon, an environmental education competition for individuals in grades 5-12. The crew brought the students to several areas in the College Forest in order to explain some basic silvicultural techniques and forestry concepts. The high school home-schooled team, called the Green Mountain Boys, finished in FIRST place out of 24 teams, scoring a 96 in the Forestry category. The middle school Green Mountain Boys took fifth place in their division. All three teams are now eligible to compete in the state competition next month. Congratulations to these budding environmentalists!
