Listen Up Northwest: Changing our Environment

RTM note: We present an encore presentation of a program originally aired in 2008. We're taking a break to get ready for our next season of shows. We'll be back with new shows at the end of January.

Listen Up! Northwest features stories about people's relationship with our environment.

Segments include:
* Native American or First Nations had managed and maintained the forests of the Northwest long before the white settlers arrived. One man strives to restore these practices in SW Oregon forests (Maria Gilardin, The Time of Useable Consciousness Radio)
* Forest Canopies are an important ecosystem which is often overlooked. We learn about how people began to studies these ecosystems more closely (Nag Champa and KAOS, Olympia, WA)
* The tar sands project in Alberta Canada is one of the largest capital projects in the world. The project extracts 1 million barrels of oil a year from its fragile environment for export to the US and Asia. (Mordecai Briemberg, CFRO Vancouver BC)
* What more fitting way to end this show than with a look at how we affect the environment after death. One Portland company specializes in assisting with "green burials" (Julie Sabatier, Destination DIY Portland)

Music by Blue Cranes, Daniel Anderson, Blue Scholars and DJ B-Girl. Copy editor: Robbin Block. Host: Yuko Kodama.
