A screen grab of a presentation on Zoom. The presentation slide has on the left a small bird with a longish black beak speckled blue feathers and a red cheek and belly balancing on a stick in precipitation. The text reads: "NASA's Climate Change Definition: Climate change describes a change in the average soil conditions — such as temperature and rainfall — in a region over a long period of time. NASA scientists have observed Earth's surface is warming, and many of the warmest years on record have happened in the past 20 years." Across the top, a dog, a woman in a green field, the inside of two offices, and avatar of plants.

Catherine Clarkin, from the Office of Education and Public Engagement, presents “Your Invisible Footprint: What Steps Can You Take?” to classrooms and other participants on Earth Day 2021.

Fermilab’s Earth Day Fair was a big success. Thanks to the day’s earlier big event, DASTOW, we had some welcome extra company: kids! Employees and their children got to visit our booths, check out the electric vehicles on display in the Wilson Hall driveway, and say hello to some reptilian wildlife.
