From the Kane County Chronicle, Aug. 3, 2016: When the Fermilab Natural Areas organization does habitat restoration, it means more than just pulling weeds. Volunteers may also end up learning about ecology.
From WTTW’s Chicago Tonight, April 27, 2016: The bison herd at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory just got a little bigger. On Tuesday, the first bison calf of 2016 was born at the particle physics laboratory located in suburban Batavia, roughly 35 miles from Chicago.
Fermilab is looking for volunteers to help with its annual prairie seed harvest. Two harvest events are planned, on Saturday, Oct. 5 and Saturday, Nov. 2, beginning at 10 a.m. Fermilab’s site hosts 1,000 acres of restored native prairie land, and each year community members pitch in to help collect seeds from those native plants.
What could be better than spending a fun-filled day outdoors and learning about natural science at the same time?
Calling all nature lovers. How would you like the chance to help diversify one of the oldest prairie restorations in Illinois?
Enjoy a day of bison, birds and bugs while learning about science and fun things to do outside at Fermilab’s Family Outdoor Fair on Sunday afternoon, June 10, 2012.
