Tuesday on the Inland Journal podcast, non-native invasive species are causing headaches for wildlife and fisheries managers in the Northwest. Idaho is trying to keep out the quagga mussel, a little creature which is becoming a nuisance in many parts of the country. We’ll hear about efforts to stop the spread of Washington’s most immediate threat, the northern pike, a big fish that’s gobbling its way toward the Columbia River. Find the Inland Journal podcast in iTunes, Google Play or NPR One or on the SPR website.
