60th Anniversary

In 2009, INL observes its 60th anniversary, a momentous occasion made possible by the generations of innovators who've worked here, and by the communities, state and region that have so long supported the lab. To commemorate this anniversary, several laboratory, community and regional events will be held throughout the year, numerous features will be written and words of encouragement and congratulations will be shared. Dates and details on all these anniversary elements will be listed on these pages, so check back often.
