Colorado Edition: Birds Of Passage
Today on Colorado Edition: Gov. Jared Polis has signed a $34 billion state budget, part of which fully restores funding cut from education in last year’s budget. We take a look at the new budget and where in education the money will go. We’ll also hear about the unease many are feeling as we slowly return to living life in-person, especially in the return to school. Then, we examine court delays caused by the pandemic and we learn more about peak bird migration, happening now in Colorado.
Today’s guests include: Erica Meltzer, bureau chief at Chalkbeat Colorado; and Kyle Horton, an assistant professor at Colorado State University, and principal investigator with CSU’s AeroEco Lab. Today’s show features reporting from: KUNC mental health reporter Leigh Paterson; and Madelyn Beck, a reporter with the Mountain West News Bureau.
