The "For Our Youth" junior club of the Ripley and District Horticultural Society met Saturday, Aug. 16, at the McLarty Study Area of the Pine River Watershed Initiative Network (PRWIN).

PRWIN's project co-ordinator Adrienne Mason offered a learning experience on pollinators which had the club members planting a flower garden to attract pollinators, then go for a nature walk and make a take-home bouquet with items collected on the trail, including material from wasp nests and pictures of birds.

Mason also included the importance of clean water in her talk. And the rain held off just long enough for the meeting to end.
