Tanana Chiefs Conference

Research conducted by the Tanana Chiefs Conference and the University of Alaska Fairbanks demonstrates the value of small, unmanned aircraft to monitor wildfire impacts and other environmental change in rural Alaska. KUAC’s Mary Auld reports.

Mary Auld was born in Fairbanks and lived here until the age of 9 when her family moved to upstate New York. She earned a degree in creative writing from State University of New York-Geneseo. After working for a newspaper in Montana, Mary began graduate studies in environmental journalism at the University of Montana.
