This week EarthFix brings you stories about the face-off between wind and hydropower in OR, rare earth minerals in Idaho and how to borrow-a-bee and help urban pollination. Host Ashley Ahearn also checks in with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife to find out who got busted, hint: it involves rattlesnakes.
Bonnie Stewart’s web story Firm Seeks Permits to Mine Idaho’s Rare Earth Minerals includes additional photos and information.
Watch 10,000 bees move from a box to their new hive in this video from Ashley Ahearn.
Each week, podcast host Ashley Ahearn will take you “behind-the-news.” You’ll hear conversations with fellow EarthFix journalists and interviews with experts talking about the latest environmental news. The podcast will also feature audio stories from the EarthFix team.
Congrats to David James for his winning submission, 'Annabella smelling the Balsam.'
