Playa Country

Thursdays at 8:20 am

Playa Country is a weekly radio show where we discuss the wildlife, wetlands and prairies of the western Great Plains, and the people who manage them. On the show, we talk to conservation and wildlife experts, as well as farmers, ranchers and land managers, about topics such as removing invasive shrubs to provide more water and forage, grazing management, the impact of fire on the landscape, and the important role playa wetlands have in recharging the Ogallala aquifer. On this page, you can listen to current and past episodes, find more information about the topics, as well as a list of resources that may be helpful.
