Radio Shows on 89.1FM WEMU
Public Health's Environmental Health Division helps to produce two radio shows in collaboration with WEMU News. Tune in to hear about environmental issues impacting Washtenaw County!
Issues of the Environment
Weekly radio show that airs each Wednesday at 8:20am.
- Wednesday, November 26: Bill Dodge, a PhD Candidate from Wayne State University's Department of Biological Sciences, will discuss his findings about coyotes in Southeast Michigan. He will also discuss why we are seeing more coyotes in urban areas due to habitat changes and development.
The Green Room
Monthly radio show that airs the last Friday of each month at 6:50am and 8:50am.
- Friday, October 31: Bats in Trouble - Local Efforts to Save Them
Many species of bats in North America have been hit by the White-Nose Syndrome--a fungus which is devastating their populations. Meanwhile, migrating bats are being killed by wind turbines, and pest control companies kill bats while removing them from homes. Are there alternatives? We depend on bats for insect control, so what can we do in our local area to help our bats?
- Friday, November 28: Bountiful Harvest
From school gardens to therapeutic farming, local folks are finding that growing your own food can have wide-ranging benefits.
Tune in to 89.1FM WEMU to hear the shows on air, or listen to archived shows on our Issues of the Environment and The Green Room pages. For questions or ideas for future show topics, please contact Mary Mathias.
