This Week on Metro Connection: Conserving & Preserving


Welcome to "Metro Connection," I'm Rebecca Sheir. On today's show, we're all about conserving and preserving, something we all do or at least talk about doing all the time. Maybe you're trying to conserve energy this summer and are turning off or turning down your AC. Perhaps you're trying to save money and are therefore foregoing your daily extra-tall-grande-venti iced coffee. Or could it be even thinking about, I don't know, digitizing old photos, bronzing baby shoes, maybe transferring all your old vinyl to mp3?


Well, whatever the case may be, it's that spirit we'll be capturing on today's show. We'll head to a Civil War battleground where a war is still being waged to save the site from development. We'll hike through the forest and hear about the fight to rescue hundreds of thousands of trees from an invasive pest. We'll hit the toll roads and learn how we can conserve and preserve our cash as we travel around the region this summer. And we'll head to Korea, sort of, to taste a certain preserved food and hear why many people see it as much more than just a side dish.
