It’s time for our month­ly roundup of envi­ron­men­tal news and stories.

This week, we start with an update to a sto­ry we brought you last month on coal explo­ration and min­ing in the Rocky Moun­tains. Next, you’ll hear about a pipeline spill in Rich­mond, Cal­i­for­nia and dev­as­tat­ing black­outs to pow­er grids across the Unit­ed States. We’ll head to Alber­ta’s north­ern bore­al for­est and hear about the pro­posed expan­sion of Kitask­i­no Nuwenëné Wild­land Provin­cial Park, and then end in Nunavut with the Nulu­u­jaaq Land Guardians block­ade of Baffin­land’s Mary Riv­er mine.

Many of the sto­ries in this episode have their roots in the efforts of Indige­nous land and water pro­tec­tors across Tur­tle Island. And at Ter­ra Infor­ma, these are the sto­ries that we are com­mit­ted to ampli­fy­ing and shar­ing with you. Groups like Raven Trust and Niit­sí­tapi Water Pro­tec­tors have been invalu­able resources for us to learn from, and we hope you find these to be good start­ing points to learn more about the ongo­ing work of these organizers.
