This week on KUNC's Colorado Edition, native fish populations in many of Colorado’s rivers are declining -- and the city of Fort Collins has taken note. They’re intervening with what they call "fish ladders" that are meant to give life in the Poudre River a step up.
Then we take a splash and segue into the world of water forecasting and how Pokemon – yes, that Pokemon – plays a small part in the solution.
These stories, plus a look at the deep cuts at The Denver Post and what politicians have to say about it.
We also take a tour of the Colorado Music Hall of Fame with KUNC arts reporter Stacy Nick and our film critic takes us back to the U.S.S.R. for a new film about Joseph Stalin.
And buffalo have long been a symbol of the West, especially to Native Americans, who see the great animals as symbols of life. Join us for two stories of the connection of the buffalo to Colorado’s high plains -- and to all westerners.
