This week, Rep. Bryce Edgmon joins us in studio for an update, The Nature Conservancy has water rights at Lower Talarik Creek, a look at Dillingham's landfill challenges, and kids get sciencey ahead of Earth Day.
Bristol Bay and Beyond, April 21, 2017: This week, Alaska House Speaker Bryce Edgmon is in town while the legislature takes a quick breather. "Really what you have between the House and the Senate right now is competing visions for what the future of the state is going to look. That's how momentous this whole fiscal discussion really is," he says. The Nature Conservancy's Rand Hagenstein joins to discuss its recent granting of an in-stream water reservation at Lower Talarik Creek. We take a tour of the landfill to get a sense of why Dillingham's trash problems are so costly. Plus (more than) a handful of youngsters lay some science facts on us ahead of Earth Day tomorrow. Those stories, plus a look back at some of the week's news.
