SV Biology Club members dominate domain

The Seneca Valley Biology Club dominated the domain winning first and second place at the Butler County Envirothon last month.

The first-place team will be attending the state level competition in Mifflinburg, PA on May 25. Team members include Natalie Camilli, Zoe Schultz, Katie Kerr, Ash Stewart and Rowan Jones.

Second place team members include Gretchen Kellar, Victoria Pimenova, Lexi Snyder, Miranda Wiggins and Rylie Butler.

The Envirothon is a natural resources competition that includes topics in Wildlife, Aquatic Ecology, Forestry, Soils and Land Use and Current Environmental Issues. Each team applies what they have studied in these areas during this outdoor competition. The competition is managed by our state agencies, including the Game Commission, Fish and Boat Commission, PA Department of Agriculture and Conservation of Natural Resources. 

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. Seneca Valley Senior High School Biology Teacher Dana Hadley advises the Seneca Valley group.
