Kayaking The Salmon River From Source To Sea: How This RSJ Alum Is Fighting Imminent Salmon Extinction
Three women are undertaking a thousand-mile journey to raise awareness about the four dams choking the life out of the Lower Snake River.
A polar sea squirt produces a chemical that has demonstrated success in fighting certain cancer cells. Reno scientists are unzipping its DNA to find out why.
With climate change making the Sierra Nevada receive less moisture and become warmer, agriculture in the region will have to learn to adapt to the new conditions.
With a warming climate and changing weather patterns, it might be time to update the federal reservoir-level rules that dictate how much water can be kept in some western U.S. reservoirs during winter.
As more winter precipitation is falling as rain instead of snow, it’s changing how much water flows into reservoirs. It turns out it might be changing how much water trees can drink, too.
Area schoolchildren helped improve the health of the Truckee River watershed by spending a week restoring an eroded area along the banks of Galena Creek, south of Reno.
A project to restore a damaged meadow in the Sierra Nevada shows the possibilities for improving an important mountain ecosystem. It can also store precious groundwater as climate change shrinks mountain snowpack, a vital source of fresh water in the American West.
As wintertime temperatures warm in the Sierra Nevada, precipitation shifts from snow to rain. That means snowpack is shrinking — and changing the entire foundation for people’s water supply across the American West.
