Terrascope Youth Radio teamed up with New Hampshire Public Radio, the Public Radio Exchange and youth radio groups around the country to create “Fresh Greens: Teens and the Environment,” an hour-long youth-produced special that has so far been licensed and broadcast by 10 stations across the U.S., from Seattle to Austin to Cape Cod.

Boston Children’s Museum Green Audio Tour
TYR’s teen interns produced Boston Children’s Museum’s official audio tour of its newly renovated facility, now a LEED Gold certified building. The tour is available preloaded on .mp3 players at the Information desk, or at the museum’s website for download to your own .mp3 player. Information on the teens who produced each segment is available here.
In collaboration with Hudson River Sloop Clearwater and WAMC/Northeast Public Radio, TYR interns produced a weekly series of short pieces about the environment to be broadcast in the "Clearwater Moments" segment of Northeast Public Radio's afternoon news programming. The series lasted roughly two months, and was heard by tens of thousands of listeners in seven states. You can hear it here.

A half-hour, TYR-produced special on “Cambridge and the Environment” aired as a special edition of the regular WMBR “Terravoice” program. It included pieces on: grass vs. artificial turf on local playing fields; locally-produced biodiesel; the city’s new, LEED-certified library building; wildlife in Cambridge; and other topics.
