DAHS Environmental Club

The DuBois Area High School Environmental Club competed on May 7 at the Pennsylvania Envirothon held at Curwensville Lake. Students from each high school across the state compete for the opportunity to advance to competitions at the state and national level. Hundreds of teachers and professionals throughout Pennsylvania guide high school students through this natural resource environmental education program that combines classroom learning and outdoor activities. This exposure to nature and seeing how humans impact the natural world provides invaluable lessons for understanding ecosystems and our environment. Teams comprised of five high school students from each area high school compete in field testing using their knowledge in five topic areas. The areas are Soils and Land Use, Aquatic Ecology, Forestry, Wildlife, and Environmental Current Event Issues. The DAHS team consisting of Victoria Kelemen, Sarah Swope, Jayden Fulkroad, Avery Timko, and Kobie Lukaschunis are shown proudly displaying their trophy for their first place finish in Current Events. The DAHS Environmental Club is coached by teachers Doug Brennan and Mike Mancuso.
