Backus/Pine River Garden Club hosts cleanup


The Backus/Pine River Garden Club did its spring cleanup and restoration of plants in the rock garden installed by Bill and Phyllis Gardner next to the Paul Bunyan Trail in Backus last Tuesday evening, June 18. After completing the project the group had a snack. The club encourages people to stop at this spot, where there is a gazebo for picnics, the bicycle trail and fresh water from a drinking fountain.
