The Franklin County Soil and Water office along with the Essex, Clinton and St. Lawrence offices host the Northern Adirondack Regional Envirothon (NARE)! Planning has begun for the 2016 NARE. Stay tuned for more information.
The Northern Adirondack Regional Envirothon is a hands-on environmental education competition where teams of five high school students work together in hopes of winning scholarships and awards. The teams compete in five different environmental categories (i.e., soils/land use, aquatic ecology, forestry, wildlife and current environmental issues.) This event is funded by donors and soil and water staff.
