The Conscience of Nature: An Exploration of our Emotional and Philosophical Connections to the Natural World
Prairie flowers
On Friday, October 17 at 8:00 p.m., Verlyn Klinkenborg, a member of The New York Times editorial board and the author of The Rural Life, will speak in Ramsey Auditorium on "The Conscience of Nature." This informal talk will explore the emotional and philosophical connection that links us to the natural world. Tickets are $5.00.

Following the talk, a new exhibit titled "The Tallgrass Prairie at Fermilab" will open with a reception in the Atrium. The exhibit will feature photos of Fermilab's prairie and information about the history and components of the prairie in Illinois. There is no charge for the opening and the reception, which will begin at about 9:15 p.m. If you are coming to the reception only, please call in advance to 630-840-2059.

Fermilab Receives National Safety Award
Fermilab recently completed twelve continuous months without a lost-time injury. To recognize that achievement, the National Safety Council awarded Fermilab its "Perfect Record" award. Jane Monhart, Fermilab Area Office Manager, and Laboratory Director Mike Witherell received the award on behalf of Fermilab. The award commends Fermilab employees and subcontractors for working 4,750,000 hours without a lost-time injury. "This is an achievement to be proud of," said Fermi Area Manager Jane Monhart. "We are very pleased to receive the award, but we are even more pleased that, for an entire year, everyone who worked at Fermilab was able to work safely and return home without injury."
