iSeeChange

KVNF is proud to be the anchor station for iSeeChange in Colorado.  iSeeChange is in its new season, one of the few projects to renew it's participation in Localore, a national public media initiative produced by AIR (the Association for Independents in Radio).

iSeeChange is a crowd-sourced reporting project with KVNF that draws on community observations about seasonal shifts in the weather. Produced by Julia Kumari Drapkin, iSeeChange hosts conversations between citizens and leading scientists about environmental change in western Colorado — showcasing debates about climate through a mobile documentary unit, weekly radio broadcasts, and multimedia explorations of each season.

The National Interagency Fire Center reported yesterday that unusually high temperatures and dry conditions, combined with light winter snowpack, are heightening the risk for extreme wildfire risk in Western Colorado through May, particularly as temperatures increase through June. Traditionally, mid-May marks the start of wildfire season on the Western slope, but this year there was an earlier start. For iSeeChange, KVNF’s Julia Kumari Drapkin reports on what’s changing when it comes to fighting wildfires.
