More than 150 participants — third to sixth grade students and 50 coaches from 14 schools in El Dorado County — will attend the 29th annual Nature Bowl Semi-finals on Friday, March 15 and Tuesday, March 19 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The Nature Bowl is sponsored by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife and is hosted by the American River Conservancy at the American River Nature Center in Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park in Coloma.

The Nature Bowl celebrates science education and promotes science and conservation literacy with third to sixth grade students in El Dorado County schools.

Activities, relays, nature investigations, and team bell-ringer questions and answers focus on local and regional environments. Each team also prepares an “Enviro-Mercial,” a short skit, jingle or commercial about a hot environmental topic or issue.

The day wraps up with an awards ceremony at 1:50 p.m. While every student comes out a winner, the top two scoring teams from each day compete in the finals at California State University, Sacramento in May.

According to organizers the students’ energy and enthusiasm for learning about science and nature is inspiring. Many students spend months preparing for this event with their parent(s), teacher(s) and/or coaches.

For more information about this big bowl of fun contact Lindsay Raber at 530-621-1224.

The American River Conservancy would like to recognize the Sacramento Municipal Utility District for sponsoring this year’s event in Coloma.

The American River Conservancy is a non-profit organization that uses the best available science, volunteers and partnerships to preserve rivers, land and the life they support. Through education and recreation the conservancy inspires the care of natural landscapes for future generations.
