Dundalk Middle School Green Club Builds Reef Balls for Our Waterways
The DRC has been working with Dundalk Middle School’s Green Club in a variety of activities that not only help with community improvements but also encourage environmental stewardship with local youth. Dundalk Middle School Green Club’s latest project has been creating reef balls that will go in our waterways.
A reef ball is a designed artificial reef that is constructed to mimic natural reef systems using a special, marine friendly, concrete. They are used around the world to create habitats for fish and other marine and freshwater species.
With the help of Joe Davis, Baltimore County Public Schools Office of Outdoor Sciences, the Green Club has been able to create multiple reef balls that will be placed in our waterways.
