Colorado Edition: Whether We Understand It Or Not
Today on Colorado Edition: We look at the factors driving the cumulative mental health strain for many Black Coloradans, and we explore the growing need for mental health care. We’ll also take a look at the record-breaking month of median home sales across much of Northern Colorado, and what it all means for sellers and would-be buyers. Plus, we explore the environmental importance of native plants, and hear how our shifting climate is impacting butterfly populations across the West.
Today’s guests include: Lucas High, a reporter with BizWest; and Denise Wilson, marketing and events coordinator for the Colorado Native Plants Society. And today’s show features reporting from: KUNC mental health reporter Leigh Paterson; and Ivy Engel, a reporter with Wyoming Public Media.
