Brunswick County 4-H Enviro-Warriors 1&A, lead by Angie Lawrence, competed in the Coastal Envirothon on March 17, 2009 at the Weyerhaeuser’s Cool Springs Environmental Center in New Bern, NC. Envirothon is a fun, hands-on, natural science academic event that challenges and engages students to think critically about the natural world and their role in it. The Envirothon combines an in-class curriculum with outdoor training to help students learn and to experience more about Aquatic Ecology, Forestry, Soils & Land Use, Wildlife and Current Environmental Issues. Sammi Lawrence, Janzen Jones (SBMS), Jordan Taylor, Cody Huff, and John Macon Michaux (SBMS) competed as Enviro-Warriors1. Enviro-Warriors A included Savanna Michaux (SBMS), Grant Wallace, Rhen Huff, Maggie Bowen, and ChristiAna Lorezel. Both teams performed well and had a great time competing.
