About this Show

Living Downstream is a program for anyone who'd like to learn about environmental topics of interest in the Umpqua Watershed of southern Oregon, and the larger Pacific Northwest region. It is hosted by Ryan Kincaid, who is serving as Umpqua Watersheds' Environmental Education & Outreach Leader through United Communities AmeriCorps. We are excited to offer this show as a way to bring awareness of environmental issues to a wider audience.

Coming Up

Episode 16: Interview with a Local Author ~ Airing May 8th & 9th

In this episode, you'll hear from Robert Leo Heilman, a local author who wrote the book Overstory: Zero, Real Life in Timber Country. In the interview, he discusses the importance of complexities - and some of the dangers of ignoring them, as well as what it means to live in community with one another.

To start out the show, we'll feature a song by local musician/songwriter Marnie Allbritten, who has shared a number of her songs with us for use on Living Downstream. If you have an original, nature-related song that you'd like to be included in the show, please email
