Guest: Kurt Repanshek, Founder and Editor of NationalParksTraveler.org More than 300 million people will visit a national park this year, which means the sounds of nature will be increasingly hard to hear. Rather than the sound of birds chirping through an almost tangible silence, there will be cars rushing and manmade sounds polluting the ambient serenity. Kurt Repanshek has reported on noise pollution in national parks for the nonprofit news site NationalParksTraveler.org, which he founded. Visit NationalParksTraveler.org to see more reports.
