Fall 18 Workshop wrap up

Despite a reschedule, the Fall 2018 Envirothon workshop at UMass Amherst was a success!

Almost all the original presenters and teams were able to be there!  202 students and 34 coaches from 20 teams (Acton-Boxborough, Bedford, Bristol Aggie, Brockton, Central, David Prouty, Doherty, Fitchburg, Greenfield, Innovation, Leicester, Lexington, Monty Tech, Newton North, Oliver Ames, PVRS, Quabbin, Reading, Shepherd Hill, and SABIS) as well as 8 members of the USDA APHIS crew attended.

 Massachusetts Envirothon wishes to thank the University of Massachusetts Amherst for the support that has made this event possible.  In particular, we are grateful for the funding, time, and expertise provided by:
