The monthly meeting of the Ranger Rick Club will be from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday, April 2, at the Carbon County Environmental Education Center. The club meets the first Saturday of each month and is open to all students in kindergarten through sixth grade.

Each month's meeting focuses on some aspect of the natural world. This month's topic, "All About Plants," will allow children to discover the importance of plants in nature's food chains and ecosystems.

The program is free for CCEEC members and a nominal donation is requested of nonmembers. For more information or to register, call (570) 645-8597. CCEEC is located at the west end of Mauch Chunk Lake Park, just outside of Jim Thorpe, along the Lentz Trail Highway.
