Our Line Opinion panelists discuss the startling number of wildfires burning in our state. It’s causing growing concern over what that could mean for the rest of the spring and summer. All that, as forecasters continue to offer warnings about ongoing drought across the state.

At New Mexico PBS, our main objective is to inform you, our viewers, about the issues that matter around this state. But we’re also committed to passing important knowledge on to the next generation. Environment reporter Laura Paskus talks with an educator in our state who helps design lesson plans based on the scientific reporting in segments of Our Land who explains these modules are a great resource for anyone.

Plus, we preview a new episode of our companion podcast, "Growing Forward," all about the cannabis industry in New Mexico. The full episode will release next Tuesday, April 19th.
