Hunting Wild Pigs in Yolo County

Aired on The California Report Magazine May 25, 2012.

Some of the most beautiful, undeveloped property in California is privately owned. That means it's off-limits to hunters, hikers, birdwatchers and other members of the public. But thanks to a new program from the Department of Fish and Game, public and private are coming together -- starting with a series of wild pig hunts.

Arcata Marsh Wildlife Sanctuary...and Wastewater Treatment System

Aired on The California Report magazine on May 4, 2012:

But that is not the case up on the North Coast, where the City of Arcata built an eco-friendly wastewater system right on scenic Humboldt Bay. But this system is so popular, people have gotten married on its grounds.
