INVITATION TO ECOLOGY CONFLUENCE – May 16th – You, the public, are invited to invite you to Confluence, the Lyons Middle/High School upcoming collaborative event between the Lyons Feeder Schools and the Town of Lyons Ecology Board. Our P-12 students will lead this year’s presentations on their Environmental Leadership projects. This public event will provide a unique opportunity for you to engage with our future leaders as they showcase their innovative solutions to local environmental questions. Following the presentations, students will gather with their projects, prototypes, and materials to further discuss their work with the community.
Your presence and input would be invaluable as you will have the opportunity to learn from the projects, offer valuable insights, and connect with others in our broader school and scientific community. Confluence will begin at 6 pm on May 16 at the Lyons Middle Senior Auditorium.
