Those of us who don’t live in a rural setting often get a city-centric view on life. The topic of impacts from the built environment tend to revolve around urban planning, design and construction. But on the weekends, as we travel the roads leading from Boise into the great wildlands of Idaho, we are reminded that humans have constructed vast networks of built infrastructure that extend into some of the more remote parts of the country – roads, power lines, buried pipelines and cables, communications towers, etc and that these networks of infrastructure have their own impacts.
In this episode, we collaborate with Matthew Podolsky – Eyes on Conservation creator to take a deep dive into research quantifying noise impacts on migrating birds on Lucky Peak mountain above Boise. Matthew interviews Jesse Barber, Assistant Professor at Boise State University and Heidi Ware, Outreach and Education Director at Intermountain Bird Observatory.
The interview aired on Radio Boise 5-19-2015. You can listen to live shows by tuning in to Radio Boise Tuesdays @ 3 PM on 89.9 FM or 93.5 FM in the Treasure Valley. Or stream online @ http://www.radioboise.org. Check out Eyes on Conservation for a podcast and more information.
