Never say our kids are not on the ball ? especially reef ball. Last week 56 fifth- and sixth-grade students gathered at the Environmental Studies Center's Camp WET program and produced concrete balls for use as artificial reefs in Martin County waters. The balls, made of quick drying concrete, will be sunk in the Indian River Lagoon. All to create new habitat for sea life. The neat part of the project is that the kids outdid their teachers, who tried unsuccessfully the week before to make reef balls, but only ended up with misshapen blobs of concrete. The new reefs will be more resistant to boat damage than the natural coral reef forms, and may be quickly replaced or added to as the need arises. Keep on the ball, kids! Great job for our environment!
