NewsDepth 2021-2022 | Episode 7

In this week's episode, the United States reopens to travelers from Canada and Mexico in November. We learn why businesses in border cities and families with members in multiple countries are so excited.

Plus, explore a career as an environmental scientist and see the job in action. Researchers in Nevada team up with NASA to forecast hurricanes and conservationists in the United Kingdom try to save important sand dune habitats.

Finally, grab your pick and brush. We meet a 6-year-old who found a mastodon tooth and want you to imagine what artifacts you might find in your own neighborhood!
