2010 Envirothon Takes Place at Tim Horton Onondaga Farms

2010 Envirothon Takes Place at Tim Horton Onondaga Farms
From May 5th to 8th, the Tim Horton Onondaga Farms hosted the 2010 Ontario Envirothon Provincial Competition. The event saw close to 100 students from across the province come together and compete in one of the only outdoor environmental competitions for high school students. Students participated in hands on workshops focused on soils, aquatics, forestry, wildlife and groundwater protection. Students took part in projects helping to restore the natural beauty of Onondaga Farms through tree and shrub plantings, and helping to stabilize pond edges with rocks. 18 schools from 18 different regions in Ontario went head to head in testing to become Ontario Envirothon Champions. Congratulations go to the University of Toronto Schools, who will go on to represent Ontario at the Canon Envirothon in Fresno, California in August.

The Ontario Envirothon is the only outdoor competition of its kind in Ontario. Over 200 schools compete across the province in their regional events, vying for a chance to represent their region at the provincial event. The Envirothon is a unique program that brings environmental awareness to thousands of students across the province. Many Envirothon participants go on to be the green leaders of tomorrow."

The Tim Horton Children's Foundation is proud to once again be hosting Envirothon in 2011.
