A team of student scientists from Warren Area High School will be moving on to the State Envirothon May 21 and 22 in Johnstown.

The American Woodcocks placed first in the varsity division of the Warren County Envirothon this week at Chapman State Park, defeating teams from all over the county.

Taking first place in the junior varsity division was Eisenhower (Middle High School) JV 2.

Students had to demonstrate their knowledge of plants and soil, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and birds, and generally anything to do with the local ecosystem.

At the end of the day, the American Woodcocks took first; The Thick Forest, also from Warren Area High School, came in second; Eisenhower Varsity 3 finished third, and; Ashborer Eliminators from Youngsville High School came in fourth.
