ecology

About 25 Fermilab employees, users and contractors, in addition to the lab’s Roads and Grounds crew, came out for the tree planting.

Please come out and help us plant 48 trees and bushes around the SBN Far and Near Detector Buildings on Wednesday, May 17, from 11:30 to 1pm. A free lunch is provided for volunteers. Please wear appropriate shoes for walking/playing in dirt. We have some gloves and shovels or bring your own.

The Annual Meeting of Fermilab Natural Areas will be held on Thursday, March 16, at 7 p.m. at the Kuhn Barn in the Fermilab Village. The keynote speaker will be Cody Considine, who will speak about “Lessons Learned from 30 Years of Restoring Tallgrass Prairie at Nachusa Grasslands.” Everybody is welcome to attend!

Head fire

Flames from the head fire on the edge of the Main Ring help speed the burning process.

Beginning in August, Fermilab’s Batavia Road gate came under the watchful eyes of several sandhill cranes. As employees and visitors alike passed through the gate, it would be difficult to miss these stately sentinels.
