Here's what we know so far:
The event starts with a letter from A to M, is in Division C, has not been competed in by T2D, falls somewhere between 2000 and 2016, is not a build, "could be" an earth science event, T2D would probably compete in it if given the choice, and probably doesn't involve animals.
Specific events it's not: Ornithology, Oceanography, Geocaching, Physics Lab, Science of Fitness

My guess: Is it Forestry?

It is NOT an event beginning from A to M.

How about from 1996 to the present, since that's how far back I've gone on Comprehensive Event Listing Wiki?
