For the third year in a row Jackson Elementary School will send a team to the Nature Bowl State Finals at California State University, Sacramento, on May 21.

The fifth & sixth grade team heads to states after great competition at the Coloma Nature Center in March 21.

“There are 500 kids that compete in Nature Bowl so to earn a spot … is a huge deal,” said team coach Michelle Klaff.

  • A cooperative team environment where third- and fourth- and fifth- and sixth-graders actively participate
  • Science-based activities (correlated with the State Science Standards) emphasizing local and regional environments
  • Innovative strategies to teach and reinforce conservation
