Our new public affairs series “The Ripple Effect” dives into the local effects of climate change on our area's cherished waterways. This project is made in collaboration with the Ithaca Voice, Cornell University, the Community Science Institute, and the Ithaca College Park Scholars. We dive into water hazards affecting the Finger Lakes region, and explore how our community is managing the burden of those issues.

Our project is ongoing, and we want to hear your questions, comments, or concerns about water in the finger lakes. Call us at 607-274-3445, or send us an email at news@ithacaradio.org.

This is the first episode of the project, and future episodes will be airing Tuesdays on WRFI Community Radio News. This episode was produced by Skylar Eagle and directed by Michayla Savitt. Music provided by BlueDotSessions.
