The Fermilab prairie burn season is nearly over. Here, a controlled prairie burn is conducted on a hillside. Fermilab’s trained crew always checks weather conditions and takes every precaution before conducting a burn. Prairie burns help get rid of invasive plants and are essential to restoring the natural habitat.
On Saturday, Nov. 12, Michael Shemanske, son of Dave Shemanske (FESS), organized a cleanup of the area outside of Wilson Hall all the way to Pine Street and Kirk Road as part of a school leadership project. The volunteers, including Prarie Rangers and Cub Scout Pack 153, collected several bags of garbage.
