Site map of this area.
The Tevatron was the largest accelerator at Fermilab and was housed in an
underground tunnel which forms a circle 4 miles in circumference. An earth
berm, a string of service buildings a road and a ring of ponds containing
cooling water are the suface indicators of the tunnel's location. The area
inside this circle has been set aside for a prairie reconstruction project,
but also contains some nice wetlands and small woodlots. Naturally, this
ensemble provides some excellent habitat for birds. The following links give
more detail about what can be seen in this area.
