Get a kick out of supporting a great cause! The first annual Bison Bowl is a kickball tournament that raises money for the bison that will soon be roaming Battelle Darby Creek Metro Park. This reintroduction of bison is part of an effort by Metro Parks to restore a portion of the park to its original condition. Not only will this be a great addition to the park, but this new habitat will also serve as a valuable educational tool for years to come. 100% of the proceeds of the Bison Bowl will benefit this Bison Reintroduction Program! You can play your favorite childhood recess game and help a good cause.
The Bison Bowl is hosted by the Stewards of Metro Parks. The Stewards of Metro Parks is a nonprofit volunteer organization committed to supporting the mission of Metro Parks: to conserve open and natural spaces; encourage park usage; and offer the public a means to engage in the long term enhancement and care of the park lands.
