The Barnegat Bay Blitz Rain Barrel Challenge

The Barnegat Bay Blitz Rain Barrel Challenge is a competition that engages schools and youth groups located in the Barnegat Bay watershed to learn about the bay and how people can help protect its water quality and natural resources. The students investigate the theme for each year's Challenge then work together to design rain barrels that address the theme.

The theme for the 2015 Challenge was From Land to the Barnegat Bay - The Natural Areas of Our Watershed. This theme was chosen so that participants could explore the natural land areas that lead into the Barnegat Bay, such as forest, marsh, meadow and grassy areas.
