July 9, Sunday—Lyndon Prairie Work (1/2) Day. Sunday July 9th is the annual Lyndon-Agnew Work Party to remove sweet clover from the native prairie in
Whiteside County. This is a high quality tall grass prairie but it needs help to preserve it. The work is not hard but it is often very hot as we wade into the unshaded grasses to remove sweet clover by either cutting or digging. Long- sleeved shirts, long pants, gloves and a hat are strongly advised as is sunscreen and insect repellant. We generally work from about 8:00 to 11:00 a.m. and return around noon. Those interested in attending should meet for carpooling at Jewel Grocery in Silvis, on John Deere Road at 7:00 a.m.
