This nature segment focuses on an aquatic rodent found locally, the Mountain Beaver. Join KBCS’s Yuko Kodama and Ed Dominguez, Seward Park Audubon Center Lead Naturalist, on a nature walk through Seattle’s Seward Park.
Birds exist everywhere we do, so it’s little wonder that they have been important to human culture from time immemorial. Their songs thrill along with their incredible display of speed and strength. Audubon has been dedicated to ensuring their survival since it was founded in 1905. From its work in stopping the sale of feathers of native birds for the fashion industry, to the ban of DDT in 1972, the organization has been on the front lines of conservation and grassroots advocacy. In this bird-rich radio feature, Martha Baskin takes a look at Audubon’s work in Washington state and why they support I-732, the carbon tax.
