 Fermilab Prairie - Classic Prairie Restorations
Fermilab services manager Bob Lootens, a Kane County native whose family had farmed a portion of the Fermilab property before it was acquired by the government, was one of the skeptics.
By inspiring the enthusiasm of Fermilab crew leaders Bob Lootens and Mike Becker — who in turn have inspired their crew members to become excellent restorers and naturalists — Dr. Betz unleashed, among other things, plenty of mechanical creativity.
Because restoration undertaken on foot is largely impractical over such a large an area, the Fermilab crew tinkered with existing agricultural equipment — everything from combines and seed drills to seed-sorting mills and the "cultipackers" that tamp down disked and sown soil.
