Join Shane Iverson and Sophie Evan for a two-hour show in English and Yup’ik on Wednesday the 20th starting at 10 a.m. on everyone’s public radio station KYUK!

We will discuss what you need to know this summer and what the closures mean for the health of the river and its people. The first hour is dedicated to getting an understanding of the roles of federal, state, and tribal management plans. We will take phone calls during the second hour of the show.
