This is a resource for advisors and students participating in the Maryland State Envirothon competition. It is not inclusive of all content you may need to know for the state competition. Students are expected to have a general understanding of the basics of wildlife ecology and management, how to identify common animals using guides, and how to age and sex wild turkeys and white-tailed deer.
