The Lyons Weed Posse is a volunteer group (operating under the auspices of the Lyons Volunteers) dedicated to manually mitigating weeds in public areas around town to prevent their spread and the use of toxic herbicides. We have done a lot of work this year in the Lyons Cemetery, along the river bank areas near McConnell, as well as in LaVern J. Park.
We meet Thursdays, from 9-11 am. This Thursday, June 21, LaVern J. Park. This year we are focusing on using reusable containers to keep plastic out of the landfill. Volunteers are welcome, and receive a voucher good for $8 at participating local eateries and food stores. Thanks to the Lyons Community Foundation!
