  • Treasure Valley rental rates are on the rise.
  • BSPR's 'Our Changing Idaho' looks at a small Idaho town.
  • Efforts to enact conservancy in Yellowstone.
  • A local group aids homeless women with hygiene products.

- Rental rates in the Treasure Valley are rising steadily and many fear affordable housing in the valley is a thing of the past. We'll talk about rental rates, inventory and the impact it could have in retaining residents and attracting newcomers.

- We'll hear the fourth installment of 'Our Changing Idaho' and talk to BSPR reporter Matt Guilham about a small Idaho town that is neither growing like many Idaho cities, nor shrinking like many American small towns.

- The Boise Period Project gathers menstrual hygiene products to create period packs for the local homeless community in Boise. They aim to end the stigmas that surround both periods and homelessness. We talk with the project about an often over-looked need of homeless women.

- We'll look at efforts to preserve the natural landscape of Yellowstone Park.
