Nature Bowl



Nature Bowl is an annual, science-based educational program for 3rd through 6th graders. Students gain ecological knowledge and conservation literacy through games, problems, puzzles, and exploration. Teamwork and creativity are encouraged as students rotate through stations in a friendly, educational competition.

Natural Bowl curriculum is based on the California Education and the Environment Initiative in conjunction with the Next Generation Science Standards. The California Department of Fish and Wildlife develops the curriculum and works with partners to hold Nature Bowl events.
