I hope you enjoy listening to the 10-31-2023 interview with Starr Belsky, of the Great Old Broads of the Wilderness Aldo Broad Band.  Ms. Belsky co-authored a report June 2023 in response to the CBP request for citizen response on a remediation plan along the Southwest border wall to address Life, Safety, Environmental, and Remediation Requirements (Make Safe Activities).   The report was a collaboration with the Rio Grande Chapter of the Sierra Club.  The report focused on environmental concerns including storm water management and the effect of Artificial Light at Night (known as ALAN).

In this discussion Starr Belsky highlights the environmental concerns, including NEPA violations and some solutions.

And they advocate for healthy borderlands and wildlife corridors, including remediation of border wall impacts.
