Southern Columbia Area was represented at the 2017 Envirothon by five teams of students, led by advisor Ms. Kristen Vitkauskas. The teams, consisting of five students each, engaged in team building and leadership experiences, as well as training and testing in five natural resource categories: soils and land use, aquatic ecology, forestry, wildlife, and current environmental issues. The Southern Columbia team of Gage Long, Kyla Madara, Trish Shufeldt, Leo Bradley, and Eli Seidel  took first in the wildlife category. Congratulations!
