This week’s episode celebrates the 100th episode of A Watershed Moment! To honor the occasion, we hear from Amy Rotter, A Watershed Moment producer and volunteer with West Michigan Environmental Action Council, who shares some insight on first 100 episodes of the program.
A Watershed Moment is a weekly radio segment aired on WYCE and is a partnership between WYCE and the West Michigan Environmental Action Council. The program was designed to highlight local people and organizations serving as stewards of the environment who have something to share with the community.
“What I think makes a great Watershed Moment is showing how these environmental issues impact people in their daily lives. Why are these topics relevant to people in West Michigan?” says Rotter.
There are so many great resources in West Michigan – from small businesses to local organizations – that work directly with the needs of the community and environment. A Watershed Moment gives people the opportunity to learn about the issues, the assets and resources in the region, and how people can get involved to add to this pool of resources.
“A lot of these fine details are overlooked, but there are some people in the community that have found a very unique niche and that are really reaching out to impact the environment in small ways.”
By taking a few minutes to listen to the radio segment, it’s easy to learn the issues and understand how you can get involved, so you too, can help the environment in some way.
A Watershed Moment is aired every Tuesday on WYCE at 8:30am and 5:30 pm. The episodes are also archived and can be found at awatershedmoment.info, as well as on the WMEAC Blog, where there is also a link to the interview.
