Beach and Creek Cleanup

A few years ago I got interested in a group that was cleaning up marine debris from beaches in Prince William Sound. I volunteered, and I was blown away by what a rewarding experience it was to pick up trash. On today’s show, we’re talking about beach cleanup, both on the wild, outer coast where stuff is washing up from Japan, and on our beaches here in Anchorage. And we’ll talk about creek cleanup too, which is coming up shortly, and where we get to tend to our own back yard. KSKA: Thursday, May 7, at 2:00 and 9:00 p.m. Listen now:

Water Taxis to Wilderness

Coastal communities are the best thresholds to the wilderness for most of us who live in urban Alaska. That’s because a short boat ride can get you from the small boat harbor to a wild beach many, many miles from the nearest road, a place that likely is inaccessible any other way. On today’s show, we’re going to talk about using water taxis and where they can take you for hiking, paddling, or just setting up camp and enjoying incredibly beautiful, biologically rich places.

Denali Dinosaurs

When people think of Denali National Park, they frequently think of the scenery, mountain, glaciers, and charismatic megafauna. But most people don't realize that nearly 70 million years ago, Denali was home to the greatest megafauna that has ever walked the earth: an assemblage of dinosaurs that lived year-round in the sub-arctic environment. Join National Park Service geologist Linda Stromquist to find out more about Denali’s dinos and the new understandings they’ve given researchers about the distribution and environment of these animals all across Cretaceous Alaska.

The prognosis for many cancers has improved due to many factors including a better understanding of the cancer, earlier detection, and better treatment often with fewer side effects. Ionizing radiation for certain cancers is one of these improved treatments. Today with the help of Dr. Larry Daugherty, radiation oncologist at the Alaska Cancer Treatment Center, we will examine how radiotherapy aids the treatment of cancer; and we will learn about the nonprofit organization Radiating Hope which is working to improve cancer care globally.
