Fermilab is one of my favorite places to visit. There are so many different ways to enjoy your time here, and paddling is just one of them. Join us for a leisurely paddle through one of Fermilab's lakes, and keep your eyes peeled for the nature that abounds in the prairie sanctuary they have rehabilitated and nurtured. Coyotes, fox, rabbits, owls, falcons, kestrel, black-crowned night heron, doubled-crested cormorants, there is so much to see!
