Radio waves: Marianne Hahn returns, talks Grand Kankakee NWR

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Marianne Hahn discusses the Grand Kankakee Marsh National Wildlife Refuge and the importance of the Kankakee River in both Illinois and Indiana this afternoon on "Outside" on WKCC-FM (91.1).

The president of the Friends of the Kankakee has some sharp opinions and has been involved in the process trying to get the NWR here since the beginning.

Overall, her opinion is that there are many more positive signs, including from groups and people on the Indiana side.

I hope.

It's the second time (photo above is from her first visit) in the past few months for Hahn being on the show, because the last time we did not get a bunch of stuff we wanted to talk about.

She catches me up on a few things about wild and cultivated blueberries, and huckleberries. And has the name of the book mentioned the last time: Carol Levine's "A Guide to Wildflowers in Winter" from Yale University Press.

And there were things we didn't get to again this time, so Hahn will be back again at some point.

"Outside" airs from 4:30-5 p.m. Mondays on WKCC-FM (91.1) in Kankakee. Rebroadcasts of the show are at 12:30 p.m. on Sundays. This week's rebroadcast was shuffled as noted and will be noted again on the weekend.

Laurel Soper, the web tech and digital media person for KCC, has put together the podcast system here.
