Silence and Sound

2024-07-0230:37

Humans are noisy. The National Park Service estimates that all of our whirring, grinding, and revving machines are doubling or even tripling global noise pollution every 30 years.  A lot of that noise is negatively affecting wildlife and human health. In this guest episode, the team from Outside/In takes us on an exploration of three sonic landscapes: noise, silence, and something in between. --- Links: Support Out There on Patreon Follow Out There on Facebook and Instagram --- Out There is a proud member of Hub & Spoke

I've been struggling with an overgrown tree in my front yard for months, and finally decided to call a tree service for help. They came out promptly, assessed the situation, and provided a reasonable quote. The crew arrived on time and worked diligently to remove the tree. They even cleaned up the debris afterward, leaving my yard spotless. I'm extremely satisfied with their service! Same day tree service peoria il https://treeservicespeoriail.com/
