Inland-Crane-Inc-Boise-Machine-Market-678x381Construction cranes and lane closures everywhere you look- it’s hard not to notice the growth and development occurring across the valley these days. Like it or not our population here in southwestern Idaho is expanding rapidly. But how did we get to this point?

Todd-Shallat-200x300Dr. Todd Shallat, tenured professor of Urban Studies and Community Development at BSU and prolific author (his latest work is “Half the World: Refugees Transform the City of Trees” was released this spring) guides us through the development of the valley’s land, economy and culture over the past 30 years.

jenpierceOur two month series on Fire & Ice continues with a look at more extreme fires in our region due to human caused climate change and the associated risks for debris flows after the fires which can damage infrastructure, personal property, and fish habitat. Today I speak with Associate Professor of Geosciences Jen Pierce from Boise State University. I will talk with her about the ways in which our landscape is changing due to high intensity fires, how to prevent human caused fires and how all of this relates in the context of climate change.
