Kane to Represent McKean County at the PA State Envirothon

The Kane Team, consisting of Dillion Mattis, Jacob Shrubb, Tyler Blackenship, Chris Cummings, and Devon Gregg took first place overall at the “Wild” Envirothon held on Thursday, May 9 2013 at the Keating Sportsmen’s Club in Smethport. This team will now go on to represent McKean County at the PA Envirothon being held at the Juniata College on May 21 and 22.

This exciting academic event pit teams from McKean and Cameron County School Districts of ninth to twelfth-grade students against each other in outdoor situations that test their knowledge of the natural world. The event was sponsored by the McKean and Cameron County Conservation Districts, Premier Communiciation, American Refining Group, Kessel Construction, Pittsburgh Corning, Pure Tech, Kightlinger Excavating, Upper Allegheny Watershed Association, Hancock Forest Management, Kerry Fetter, Lafayette Township, the Keating Sportsman’s Club, Bells Meat Market, G.L. Carlson, Walmart, Headwaters Conservation Partnership,Team Minard Screen Printing & Embroidery, Singer’s Auto Service, Emporium Secondary’s and Embassy Powdered Metals

During this hands-on competition, students may be asked to measure a tree…analyze water from a stream…or feel handfuls of earth to identify the type soil. They work as a 5-member team to answer questions of fact, and use their critical thinking to find solutions to reality-based situations, such as how to balance the use and protection of our natural resources through 5 stations.
The stations included: Forestry, manned by Stan Hess, DCNR Bureau of Forestry; Wildlife, manned by Len Groshek, Tom Sabolicik and Wayne Hunt from the PA Game Commission; Soil and Land Use, manned by Ben Renner, NRCS, Roosevelt Carter from the ANF and Dave Stratton from the Farm Service Agency; Aquatics, manned by Heather McKean, McKean County Conservation District and Todd Delucia, Cameron County Conservation District and the Current Event, manned by Nicole Santangelo, Penn State Extension and Joan Biehler from the McKean County Planning Commission.
