the rain barrel, and taught the students all about how rain barrels can be used
in our gardens to help conserve water and water our plants. They began to
participate in the 2016 Rain Barrel Challenge.

how harmful garbage is to wildlife in the Barnegat Bay. Acrylic paint was used

barrel that shows creative thinking skills. The rain barrel will be used in the school

their rain barrel. They also became environmental ambassadors for the Barnegat
