On Thursday, April 24, Fermilab hosted its Earth Week Fair in the Wilson Hall atrium.

The fair featured the laboratory’s Garden Club and Sustainability Committee, as well as outside organizations such as SCARCE, Friends of the Fox River and the Midwest High Speed Rail Association. Employees also manned solar energy and bicycle commuting booths and an office-supply swap table.
