Thursday, April 22 will mark the 51st celebration of Earth Day. While from outer space our planet may look the same as always, we all know things down here look very different nowadays. That said, Earth keeps spinning and Earth Day festivities will go on. Fermilab will continue its tradition of celebrating Earth Day, though as in many other areas of life, this year will look a little different. Rather than holding our Earth Day Fair on site, this year Fermilab will host multiple virtual events over the course of the week.

These events will include a presentation on sustainability at the lab, a live walk-through of one of our prairies with ecologist Wally Levernier, classes for children on how to be a wildlife helpers and more. Many of the events are open to the public and are suitable for all ages.

For more information and a schedule of the events please visit Fermilab’s Earth Day website at https://eshq.fnal.gov/atwork/earth/. We look forward to celebrating with you!
