2013-2014 Massachusetts Envirothon Steering Committee

The Massachusetts Envirothon Steering Committee is a sub-committee of the Massachusetts State Commission for Conservation of Soil, Water, and Related Resources created to administer the Massachusetts Envirothon Program. The purpose of the Steering Committee is to help fulfill the conservation education mandate of the State Commission through the Envirothon Program.

Committee members are official representatives of their agencies who take on specific roles in program planning and implementation. They meet through the year to develop program policy and curriculum, and to plan and manage Envirothon events.

They are assisted in this work by the Mass Envirothon Coordinator, Brita Dempsey
