Plymouth Rotary hosted River Watson, Environmental Education Coordinator at the Marshall County Recycle Depot, at their June 13th meeting. Watson talked about his role in creating free environmental programs for kids of all ages, as well as adult groups. His work focuses on the importance of reducing waste, reusing materials, and recycling, but he also provides programs that touch on STEM topics and other types of conservation such as composting. Watson is also actively developing improvement projects at the Recycle Depot, such as replacing invasive plant species on the property with native plants for use in education and pollinator support.

Plymouth Rotary Club meets every Monday for lunch and networking from 12 noon to 1 p.m. at Opie’s Deli in Plymouth. They are a diverse group of community members who collaborate on fun community service projects that benefit their local community. Find them on Facebook at Plymouth Rotary.
