"Scenic Roots" offers conversations that matter in the heart of Chattanooga and the Tennessee Valley.From the mountains to the river, our conversations are rooted deep within every corner of our community - reflecting who we are, who we were and who we can become.We engage with the news that affects our community, behind and beyond the headlines. We build bridges that span from creators and innovators to storytellers and the outdoors. We focus on our challenges as many communities in one - as we celebrate what inspires us. We resonate with countless voices - in words and spaces, sounds and songs.We are "Scenic Roots."Ray Bassett hosts and produces "Scenic Roots" at WUTC.
Resilient Communities For The Age Of Climate Change
We hear that word a lot when we talk about the effects of climate change - and what to do about them.
Residents in Tennessee and Georgia are now participating in a pilot program called “Resilient Communities” - steered by Thrive Regional Partnership and the Open Space Institute.
Among the communities in the program: South Chattanooga, Dalton, Spring City and South Pittsburg.
I spoke with Rhett Bentley and John Bilderback with Thrive - and Joel Houser with the Open Space Institute.
