Summer Learning in Santa Fe, Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge, The Line

1149 St Johns College

This week on New Mexico in Focus, Gene Grant explores a unique learning experience with two tutors from a college in the City Different. For over 25 years, Summer Classics at St. John’s College in Santa Fe has hosted participants from around the world for weeklong seminars in literature, science, history, philosophy and more. David Carl and Peter Pesic talk about the part they play in this “unrivaled intellectual retreat.”

Correspondent Laura Paskus takes us to the Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge for a repeat broadcast of a popular segment in the series “Our Land.” The first urban refuge designated in the Southwest, the Valle de Oro was once a dairy farm that is now being restored as habitat for wildlife and a recreation area for visitors.

Gene Grant and the Line opinion panelists analyze the results of the primary races in New Mexico. The Line panelists also debate merits of a proposal to give Topgolf $2.6 million in city incentives to open in Albuquerque, and look at a new report that shows UNM’s athletic department falls short of federal guidelines for gender equality.
