Lyons River Clean Up
Saturday, May 1st | 10 am - noon
Earth Day River Cleanup Scheduled -- We Need Your Help
Established in 1970, Earth Day is celebrated worldwide on April 22. The event was created to give voice to the many environmental concerns in the United States and across the globe. Today, 193 countries actively participate in civic engagement and volunteer events for Earth Day.
In Lyons, we understand that everyday is Earth Day. To usher in Earth Day, the Sustainable Futures Commission (SFC) is organizing a St. Vrain river cleanup on Saturday, May 1. Join local residents and volunteer your time to band together and tackle litter in the St. Vrain River corridor in town and help with the river cleanup. The St. Vrain River is a treasured resource for all of us and a healthy community starts with a healthy river. Clean rivers provide everything from clean drinking water to recreation opportunities to fish and wildlife habitat. The St. Vrain cleanup is a visible way our community can celebrate and participate in Everyday Earth Day. In addition, Can’d Aid will be providing bags for trash pickup.
The cleanup is scheduled for Saturday, May 1, from 10 AM to noon. Volunteers should meet at the Bohn Park concession and restroom building at 9:45 AM. At that time, you will be assigned a cleanup area and provided with a waiver form. Trash bags will be provided by Can'd Aid.
