We are joined in the studio by two staffers from the City of Ann Arbor’s Natural Area Preservation (NAP) unit: the Volunteer & Outreach Coördinator, Jason Frenzel-​​Wright, and City Ornithologist, Deaver Armstrong respec­tively.

But first the news…
Some examples of new man­u­fac­turing and business inno­va­tion ideas in Michigan: WindTronics 760 wind turbines out of Muskegon, Affordable Green Energy LLC out of Essexville. Plus, our watch con­tinues on the brewing fights over new coal-​​fired power plants.

And the Sustainable Fish of the Week!

Back talking with our guests we discuss the details of the Natural Area Preservation unit which is a nation­ally unique city program that employs folks like ornithol­o­gists while reaching out to the com­mu­nity to vol­un­teer to help inven­tory and maintain the ecology of the city’s natural areas. Lean much more and get involved here:
