PA Envirothon Executive Director Lorelle Steach To Retire After 30 Years Of Service To Envirothon Student Competitions

On May 25, the
PA Association of Conservation Districts announced the retirement of Lorelle Steach as executive director of the Pennsylvania Envirothon where she administered the statewide Envirothon competition, which included working with state and national agency partners, county Envirothon coordinators, students, and teachers.

"Lorelle worked with Envirothon for more than 30 years at the county, state, and national/international levels. She has helped provide students with the knowledge and tools necessary to address the natural resource challenges facing today's world. 

"This has all been made possible through the long-lasting relations that Lorelle has developed over the years, as well as the partners who continue to strongly support the Envirothon."

Envirothon History

The first Envirothon competition was created in 1979 by the Fulton, Luzerne and Schuylkill conservation districts and by 1984 the program expanded to a statewide competition and then nationally and internationally.

Now more than 15,000 high school students across the state compete in 67 county Envirothons.

Pennsylvania has won the International Envirothon competition in 1988, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1994, 1997, 2000, 2001, 2003, 2005, 2009 and 2017 and frequently places in the top 10 and top three finishers.
