Programs: Fermilab Prairie Plant Survey

Description: Be a field scientist along with Fermilab docents to help monitor prairie restoration. Learn scientific plant monitoring techniques while enjoying our beautiful prairie when you join this program. Open to the public, adult groups, families, scouts and more. Suggested age for this program is 10 and older. Participants will learn to identify prairie plants, map a prairie plot and track restoration progress just like the experts. Participants use the Education Office's website to enter data they collect.

Come once or come back two or three times a year. Keep an eye on this prairie for years to come. Be ready to hike and explore parts of our site that are not normally open to the public. Wear long pants and closed-toe shoes.

There is no charge for this program; we value your contribution to prairie science!
