Tall, bushy, spiny and fragrant, the pinyon pine is a beloved feature of the Mountain West — and not just for its beauty. The tiny piñon nuts in the tree's cones are so good, people in the region have eaten them every fall for countless generations. But as climate change continues to affect the United States, something terrible is happening. The piñon harvest is getting smaller and smaller.Today we go to New Mexico, where the pinyon is the state's official tree. We talk to Axios race and justice reporter Russell Contreras, who's based out of Albuquerque and has an up-close view of the piñon's slow disappearance. And a native New Mexican — Tey Marianna Nunn, director of the Smithsonian Institution's American Women's History Initiative — tells us about the nut and tree's cultural importance.More reading:Op-Ed: Pinyon and juniper woodlands define the West.

Gavin Christensen is the founding visionary at Kickstart Fund. In 2008, he recognized the need for both leadership and seed-stage capital in the region, so he launched Kickstart to fill this gap. Starting a seed-stage firm away from the coasts amidst the Great Recession was not easy, to say the least. But this experience means Gavin understands what it's like to see a vision for the future that few others do, and he knows what it takes to make that vision a reality. His guidance to founders is born of first-hand experience and a desire to build not just a fund but an entire ecosystem. Kickstart is now the most active investor in Utah and has expanded to Colorado, New Mexico, and the rest of the Mountain West. Gavin loves being part of the startup journey for entrepreneurs. Before helping to pave the way for seed funding in Utah, Colorado, and the Mountain West, Gavin was an analyst, associate, and principal at vSpring Capital (now Signal Peak). Outside of Kickstart, Gavin can be found spending time with his family, multitasking while riding his Onewheel, fine-tuning his VR gaming skills, and playing tennis.
