June 6 - Bipartisan Conservation Effort Strengthens Yakima Watershed, Adds Protection For Two Northern NM Areas

Elizabeth Shogren, a Washington, DC reporter for High Country News, told KSFR's Dave Marash on HERE AND THERE about plans to add water to the Yakima river basin in Washington state and give wilderness protection to 2 New Mexico areas north of Taos.
