Thank you Mayor Kennedy

Mayor Kennedy spent sometime this morning at Lynn Woods School.  Mrs. Whalen’s third grade class at Lynn Woods Elementary School has been researching information about invasive plants and their effects on the environment. Through their research they have discovered that there are invasive plants near the entrances of Lynn Woods. After taking a field trip to meet with Ranger Dan Small to learn more about invasive plan in Lynn Woods, they learned that many of these invasive plants have entered Lynn Woods due to dumping of yard waste. They are encouraging all citizens of Lynn not to dump yard waste in Lynn Woods. Yard waste may contain invasive plants that could threaten many plants species in Lynn Woods.  The students were eager to share their knowledge .  Mayor Kennedy was very interested and receptive to their proposals.   The visit was super special and the children really enjoyed it.  Thank you for helping us.
