Our guest in this episode is Ranger Amy Burnett, a wildlife expert with the Arizona Game and Fish. She is well-loved in her community for rescuing injured and sick wild animals from people’s yards, for her lively presentations that include live animals, and for her appearances on morning news shows around Phoenix, Arizona.
In this episode, we tackle issues related to the impact of light pollution on wildlife and discuss easy things anyone can do to reduce light pollution on their own property.
In our tour of the night sky, we learn about a beautiful origin story associated with the Pleiades start cluster and learn how to find the Winter Triangle.
