This is a study guide 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 knowledge and understanding of wildlife ecology, wildlife management and national and state legislation affecting wildlife.
With the 2021 virtual event this year, students will still be expected to know 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. Recommended study material includes the Wildlife Study Guide linked below, training videos, and the new PDF guides. Students will be provided the MD Mammals 2021 PDF, MD Herps 2021 PDF, and MD Birds 2021 PDF during the virtual test to use in lieu of field guides. They will not be expected to know how to use the Maryland Hunting Guide this year.
