Mountain Edition: May 17, 2018

Hosts Elizabeth Stewart-Severy and Wyatt Orme bring you highlights of the week in news in the Roaring Fork Valley. 

This week, we hear about how female artists are challenging the traditional roles of women in the art world. Aspen police and city council want to protect wildlife from humans.

Plus, a lobbying group representing mountain communities recently traveled to Washington D.C. to advocate for public lands. And we hear about a program where local artists mentor students, teaching much more than just technique.  


Aspen native Elizabeth Stewart-Severy is excited to be making a return to both the Red Brick, where she attended kindergarten, and the field of journalism. She has spent her entire life playing in the mountains and rivers around Aspen, and is thrilled to be reporting about all things environmental in this special place. She attended the University of Colorado with a Boettcher Scholarship, and graduated as the top student from the School of Journalism in 2006. Her lifelong love of hockey lead to a stint working for the Colorado Avalanche, and she still plays in local leagues and coaches the Aspen Junior Hockey U-19 girls.
