Sunshine is abundant this time of year, but cooler temperatures this week have slowed the melting of a well above normal snow pack in Fairbanks. As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, that’s affecting migratory bird’s arrival at a local refuge.
A landmark tree in Fairbanks is no more. The 75 foot tall white spruce that stood in front of the Creamer’s Field Migratory Waterfowl Refuge farm house was cut yesterday (Monday). As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, the tree was dying from stress cracks and a beetle, and needed to come down, but it won’t be forgotten.
