NCF-Envirothon spans the length and breadth of North America – from the deserts of the southwestern United States to the frozen tundra near the Arctic Circle in Canada; from the Everglades to the Olympic peninsula. It is a large territory with many different habitats and remarkable biological and cultural diversity. The Curriculum Guidelines have been developed to accommodate as much educational diversity as possible. They are not meant to replace any state or provincial Envirothon curriculum, but rather to provide a standard framework for students and advisors headed to the NCF-Envirothon.
NCF-Envirothon is a example of the practical use of STEM initiatives and the application of related career opportunities. Each year we continue to upgrade our connections with STEM and Next Generation Science Standards. Continue to watch our website for new developments.
