Mountain Edition - August 8th, 2013
Aspen Public Radio became a bit more digital this week. We posted our first story told through video of the 40th anniversary of the Snowmass Rodeo. It’s part of the station’s multi-media expansion.
With oil and gas in the news pretty much all the time in Colorado, we take a look at lessons learned from one of the hot spots in Western Colorado some years ago.
We continue our Work the Valley series with a look at a forest service employee who designs plans to make towers, power lines and fences blend in with nature.
And, we’ll take a trip to Summit County where an act of Congress could open up more land for affordable housing. Just like the Roaring Fork Valley, it’s a pricey area where free market homes are often out of reach.
We talk to the Chief Scientist for The Nature Conservancy. M. Sanjayan talks about mega-fires and disappearing snowpack.
