Nature Bowl 2021: Family Challenge Edition
An Environmental Education Adventure for the Whole Family!
With the Nature Bowl Family Packet, you will find everything you need to participate in this fun and educational competition. Nature Bowl was started nearly 35 years ago in the North Central Region by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) and its partners. The event’s goal is to connect students with the natural world around them.
Due to the pandemic, Nature Bowl 2020 was cancelled, along with everything else. So instead of another cancellation or all-virtual activities, Nature Bowl 2021 is rolling with the times as the Family Challenge Edition!
Let the Games Begin!
The goal of this year’s Nature Bowl Competition is to get California families outside – in your backyard, neighborhood and/or your local nature area – for some some outdoor adventure!
