** ATTENTION PHOTOGRAPHERS**

As part of our Lyon County Parks 50th Anniversary Celebration during 2017 we are inviting photographers to "Photo the Park" thoughout 2017. Garvin Park is nearly 800 acres with 15 miles of trails traversing the oak woodlands along the Cottonwood River in Lyon County - 13 miles South of Marshall. Garvin Park has an amazing bloom of Snow Trilium, striking fall sumac and picturesque mature bur oaks covering the park. So build a blind, find a bloom, or wade the river for that picturesque shot!

Please consider helping add to the photo history of the park by contributing your photos to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for Lyon County.

Thank you!

 

 

 The Environmental Department provides rental of County Fairgrounds buildings and grounds for special events, wedding receptions, graduation parties, and more. Our two County Parks both have campground facilities with low nightly camping rates. 

Residential "curbside" recycling, and use of recycling sheds/containers are provided for residents only. Commercial recycling is not provided through the County, however we encourage your business to recycle, and are glad to help.
In addition to curbside collections, disposal of special materials (mattresses, car seats, electronic waste, etc.) is available to businesses and resident alike.

 Residents and businesses in the eight-County region may dispose of construction & demolition waste, regular garbage, and large garbage items. The landfill is also the collection point for other recyclable materials including metal, appliances, electronic waste, and tires.

 

Please refer to the attached documents for current prices related to the Environmental Department.

** ATTENTION BIRDWATCHERS **

As part of our Lyon County Parks 50th Anniversary we are inviting birdwatchers to "Bird the Park" throughout 2017. We realize there are hundreds of great places to bird watch in Minnesota, yet are asking if you might consider visiting Garvin Park in 2017 so that we can better understand Garvin Park's bird life.

Garvin Park is nearly 800 acres with 15 miles of trails traversing the oak woodlands along the Cottonwood River in Lyon County - 13 miles South of Marshall. If you can help us add our understanding of birds in the park, please consider contributing your observations through eBird, the Minnesota Ornithologists' Union Seasonal reporting page, or emailing your observations to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for Lyon County.

Garvin Park is listed at a "hotspot" on eBird: eBird Hotspot - Garvin County Park. Results can also be posted to the MOU Seasonal Report page 

Thank you! and Good Birding!

Opened in 2016, Twin Lakes Park is Lyon County's newest park; nestled between East Twin and West Twin lakes. Two campsites are able to be reserved. Twin Lakes Park came to fruition from the desire of a local landowner to leave a legacy with land he owned. Other area landowners have also sold land to the County for future generations to enjoy camping and recreation in the area.

Twin Lakes Park exists from partnerships, generous donations, and Clean Water Land & Legacy Amendment Funding. A plan for future campground development is in the planning stages. Lyon County hopes to secure additional State Legacy Grant funding in the future for expanding this beautiful park area.

ADMINISTRATION

Lyon County manages Garvin Park (North of Garvin), and Twin Lakes Park (near Florence), and assists with maintenance of the Camden Regional Trail. Connecting to the Environment promotes a healthier lifestyle. Make a goal to visit a park this year. Your body will thank you.

Question: "Would you throw away your car if it still had value?" Of course not. Yet less than 50% of Lyon County residents recycle. We coordinate residential curbside recycling as well as recycling fluorescent, computer and TVs, mattresses & car seats. Don't see it on the list? Call to ask if it can be recycled. 

Some items do have to be disposed of at the landfill, but we attempt to divert as much waste from the landfill as possible to delay expensive construction additions. Lyon County serves 8 Counties with our Regional Landfill. The landfill has a barrier to protect the groundwater, pumps and systems to manage rain water and landfill gasses, and daily practices to keep litter in control.

Our mission statement above is in line with our objectives to make wise financial choices, while at the same time advocating for protection of our local natural resources, and best management practices that protect the people in our region.
