Former Uranium Plant Now A Nature Preserve

It's been 27 years since the Fernald Feed Materials Production Site in southwest Ohio closed down. Ten years ago this weekend, the work to replace the contaminated uranium plant with a nature preserve wrapped up.  For Ohio Public Radio, WVXU's Bill Rinehart looks at the1-thousand-fifty acre site and what happened to return it to its natural state.

The Department of Energy Office of Legacy Management is hosting an event October 29 to remember the cleanup and to showcase the Preserve. It's from 10 to 2 at the visitors center on Willey Road.
