Experts are currently preparing to attack this huge problem but many wonder what this attack will mean to our environment, the Black Hills and the people who live there. Find out at 8pm CT / 7pm Mt. Plus you can call in with your own questions 1.877.825.5788 or send your questions to SDFocus@sdpb.org
