Review from Guidestar

I am a recent IJNR fellow and feel so grateful and fortunate for the experience. Frank, Peter, Adam, Maggie, and all the staff were wonderful and I admire their commitment to their work. As a journalist I deeply enjoyed the fellowship with other journalists from the program and the opportunity to enhance my knowledge and skills in environmental reporting. Keep up the great work!

This organization puts together field trips for journalists on the environmental beat. I was an IJNR fellow in 2006, and I found the trip to be impeccably planned and researched. More than four years later, I still draw on sources on made and things I learned. The trip was intense with very little down time, but it really improved my reporting. IJNR offers the trips for free to journalists, because a small-town newspaper like mine would never have been able to afford a trip like this.

It's going on 10 years since I got on the bus with Frank and Co., but nearly every week I'm reminded of a place or speaker or a fellow journalist that I met on our travels. Without question, my IJNR experience ranks as one of the most educational and rewarding of my career. If you work in natural resources/energy/or the environmental community and frequently complain about the quality of reporting on your industry, then do something about it and invest money and time in IJNR. IJNR not only provides a chance for reporters to dig deeper than normal into issues, but it opens their minds.

After a week with IJNR, I was sure that covering natural resources full time was what I wanted to do. . .

I'd use more helicopters, and rafts.

IJNR is a great resource for journalists all over the country - a great way to learn more about environmental issues by taking the time to travel and learn. In this time of dwindling newsroom resources, what IJNR provides is necessary for our education and growth. Taking part in an IJNR fellowship helped me understand complex energy and environmental issues I just didn't have time to dig into and research during my day-to-day work life as a reporter at a station with limited resources. IJNR's leaders are aware of what journalists need to know to do their jobs well, and they work to provide that information hands-on.

Taking part in the fellowship gave me great background for stories I later covered in my state.
