Whether it’s cocking an ear to the call of a bird or following up on seismic data coming in from sensors, listening to the natural world is important.

In this episode guest producer, John Perreault talks with Dr. Taryn Lopez with the Alaska Volcano Observatory. The unit is celebrating its 30th anniversary.

And I visit with Alaska Department of Fish and Game Biologist and Education Specialist Mark Ross. He’s been introducing visitors and locals to the wonders of the Creamer’s Field Migratory Waterfowl Refuge for decades. His notebook observations and drawings have also been a welcome periodic feature in the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner.

And Chris Lott is in with a Katexic Clippings forged at Vulcan’s smithy. You can listen to the program here.
