Wildfire hits the good, bad, and ugly of the legislative session

The current episode of Wildfire offers lots of news about what the legislature did – and did not do – on fishing, conservation, and environmental issues.

Host Harry Vanderweide and I welcomed guest Beth Ahearn, Political Director and lobbyist for the Maine Conservation Voters, for this 30 minutes tour through the good, the bad, and the ugly of this year’s legislative session.

You can watch the show on Maine Audubon’s website. You can also watch previous Wildfire shows at Maine Audubon’s website.

Each new show premiers on a Wednesday night and runs for two weeks on Time Warner’s statewide cable network (usually channel 9). It can be seen:

Wednesday at 7 pm

Friday at 7:30 m

Saturday at 2:30 pm

Sunday at 9:30 pm.

Tomorrow Harry and I will tape three new shows. I’ll tell you about them soon!
