Kettle Creek Crusaders
Advisor: Mr. Gary Paxton
The Kettle Creek Crusaders, a small group of dedicated Lake Riviera Middle School (LRMS) students, will expand integrated environmental studies curriculum though exploring the Kettle Creek watershed. Crusaders will research, observe, test water quality and map the Kettle Creek and its surrounding tributaries. The students will identify and compile an inventory of characteristic vegetation and wildlife indigenous to this watershed. They will visit local parks and protected areas to learn about the history, ecology and environment of the Kettle Creek Watershed. They will learn how local and state governments are preserving land through open space preservation efforts. Students will look to inform and educate community members through outreach about the significance of the watershed has on local wildlife, vegetation and the importance Kettle Creek has on the Barnegat Bay National Estuary. Students will educate the public by reaching out to a broad spectrum of residents including seniors and pre-kindergarten students and bring attention to the Kettle Creek watershed though the knowledge learned during their experiences as Kettle Creek Crusaders.
