Natural gas is an energy source that comes from the ground and was created millions of years ago from the remains of plants and animals that decayed. That’s why natural gas is called a fossil fuel—it comes from fossils.
Begin your experience as a Junior Excavator by dressing up in a hard hat and vest—just like Nicor Gas employees! Learn how natural gas pipelines deliver this energy source to homes and schools, and how we mark pipelines to protect your safety. Once you help mark the underground pipelines on the job site, dig for “fossils” and other buried treasures underground.
At the end of the experience you will learn important natural gas safety tips from Sniffy the Skunk and receive a coloring page as well as a scratch and sniff card so you know how to Smell Gas? Act Fast!
