IN: “From PRX and the Jennifer and Ted Stanley studios...” OUT: “Please join us by making a contribution to this station. Here’s how. 
1.) RACE AND ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE: Environmental pollution and exposure to climate risks are closely linked with systemic racism. For example, Black communities are exposed to higher rates of pollution than non-Hispanic white communities and tend to experience the worst of heat waves linked with climate disruption. Heather McTeer Toney, the National Field Director for Moms Clean Air Force, joins Host Steve Curwood to talk about these links and how the national environmental organizations have long sidelined Black organizers. (9:55) 
OUT TEXT: “Hi, I’m Steve Curwood, host of Living on Earth. In these uncertain times of political and social unrest we work hard to consistently bring you stories that shine a light on the news of the day and put it into an environmental context in a way that you won’t hear anywhere else.

OUT: “”...the number to call and thanks!” 
1.) OUTDOOR LEARNING SAFER IN THE PANDEMIC: As schools and pre-schools reopen, some educators are considering the benefits of outdoor learning to help lower the risk of Covid-19 transmission. In Scotland, nature-based preschools were already popular before the pandemic. Cameron Sprague, a team leader at nature-based Stramash nursery school in Fort William, Scotland, spoke with Living on Earth’s Bobby Bascomb about how he and his fellow educators incorporate outdoor learning into their preschool curriculum, and the many benefits of outdoor education. (9:45) 
2.) REFUGEES CULTIVATE HEALING THROUGH GARDENING: The United States has long been a place for political refugees to seek safety and put down roots, in some cases literally. In Comer, Georgia a community garden called the Neighbor’s Field is helping refugees work through their trauma by working the land. Producer Sean Powers has our story. (4:55) 
OUT TEXT: From woods and fields for preschoolers to a community garden for refugees, nature has an amazing power to keep us healthy and heal. I’m Steve Curwood, host of Living on Earth, and here at the show we hope to inspire our listeners to get out and experience the power of nature for themselves. Your support makes our work possible. Please consider joining us with a contribution.

Seg 5 SEGMENT C: 12:29 
IN: “It’s a special edition of Living on Earth, I’m Steve Curwood.” 
OUT: "... here’s how you can help" 
1.) PEAR TREE ESSAY: Writer Jennifer Berry reflects on the wonders of a pear tree from her pre-pandemic life. Warblers, mockingbirds, and cedar waxwings are just a few of the creatures that find a feast in an old yet fruitful pear tree. (2:45) 
2.) GOATSCAPING FOR CHEMICAL FREE WEED CONTROL: For many people with a yard full of weeds pesticides or backbreaking labor are typically the only remedies. But a herd of hungry goats will happily mow down invasive blackberries, kudzu, and even poison ivy. Living on Earth's Aynsley O'Neill took a trip to Georgetown, Massachusetts to watch some “goatscapers” on the job. (8:40) 
OUT TEXT: The world these days can seem out of our control at times. From the coronavirus pandemic to runaway climate change it can feel overwhelming. But here at Living on Earth we work hard to unearth stories about the small things people can do to improve our world, like hiring goats for landscaping instead of turning to toxic chemicals. I’m Steve Curwood, host of Living on Earth. Your generous contributions make it possible to continue to bring you the news you can use in these uncertain times. So, please support that work and pick up the phone. Here’s the number to call. (:33)

PROMO Seg 1
SHOW PROMO Total: 30 Steve Curwood 
Some schools that want to reopen in the pandemic are looking to spend more time outside.
SPRAGUE: Being in heated, nonventilated rooms is the petri dish for picking up bugs and things; that's just what happens in schools. But by being outside, we're avoiding that. 
I'm Steve Curwood. The health benefits of outdoor education, next time on Living on Earth from PRX.
