Butterflies at Playgroup

The Fermilab Playgroup have raised monarch butterflies from eggs found on milkweed at the Children’s Garden.

Playgroup meets every Wednesday at Kuhn Barn for fun and crafts. But Playgroup is more than just a weekly gathering — it is a community of Fermilab families. We gather for special events year-round — such as fishing, gardening, hiking, Trick-or-Treating and more! We network, share resources and do family activities on and off site.

Join the Playgroup listserv to stay up to date on family friendly activities.

Jessica Jensen is the Fermilab global services outreach coordinator. Marguerite Tonjes provides computing support for the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider Physics Center and is a Playgroup parent.
