 Kevin Warner started his new job as head of the Aspen/Sopris Ranger District of the White River National Forest on Monday. He began his career in 2001 as a summer intern on the Maroon Bells/Snowmass Wilderness Area. He’s worked on national forests in Alaska and Arizona, and for the past four years, in the Glenwood Springs headquarters of the White River National Forest. KDNK's Amy Hadden Marsh talks with him about his work.  

Patrick Johnson closed on 2,500 acres in Pinal County over five years ago. The property, just off Interstate 8, is mostly farm fields right now. Johnson’s plan is to build a dream spot for motorsports lovers, including two tracks for racing or testing, 2,000 homes, and a hotel. 

But millions of dollars in, Johnson is a long way from a grand opening.

Today was the third annual Healthy Rivers Youth Water Summit. Students from six local schools met at Third Street Center in Carbondale to share presentations on topics like Health of the Roaring Fork River, Impacts of Snowmaking, Hydro Power, Grey-Water Use and more. Sarah Johnson is the director of the Youth Water Leadership Program, the group that organizes the event. She spoke about what makes this year’s summit stand out.
