On June 6, eight students in Fermilab’s Prairie Ranger program graduated as its first Eco Rangers. To graduate from Junior Prairie Ranger to Eco Ranger, students attend one year of pin sessions followed by a year going through the Eco Ranger program. Their activities include planting trees, broadcasting and harvesting seeds, cleaning woods and prairie restoration areas and volunteering at the Fermilab Family Outdoor Fair. Congratulations to all the graduates!

Congratulations to Fermilab’s recent Walk 2 Run graduates. These employees completed a free 10-week program designed to improve fitness and lose weight by gradually increasing their running potential. At the conclusion of the 10 weeks, most participants were able to complete a 30-minute continuous run or a 5K.
