Podcasts on Mountain Pine Beetles and Wilderness Can be Found at The Rocky Mountain Nation Podcast


Here at the Traveler we've written quite a bit about mountain pine beetle attacks on forests in the Rockies, as well as wilderness issues. Well, over at the Rocky Mountain Nation Podcast you can listen to similar stories.

Regarding mountain pine beetles in Rocky Mountain National Park, reporter/producer Aaron Deschane discusses mitigation work being done by a private contractor.

Mr. Deschane also recently produced a podcast on the designation of wilderness in Rocky Mountain. You can listen to that report by clicking here.


Thanks for the link interesting listen. After some digging, I found an "about us" page for the Rocky Mountain Nation. I'm glad this group is taking the initiative and setting up these podcasts.
