OSWEGO – The Oswego County Legislature’s Economic Development and Planning Committee presented a certificate of recognition to students from Pulaski High School as the winning team of the 2019 Oswego County Envirothon.
The group then went on to place ninth out of 46 teams in the New York State Envirothon, including a first-place win in forestry.
Coordinated by the Oswego County Soil and Water Conservation District, the competition tests high school students’ knowledge of natural resources with hands-on exercises in aquatics, forestry, wildlife, soil and land use, and environmental issues.
