I've enjoyed IJNR's expeditions since they started in the mid-'90s. I began as a teenager tasked with hauling coolers full of beverages from site to site. I wound up as person who cares deeply about the environment and who wants to see America's newsrooms far better-equipped to the myriad natural-resource stories that have a huge impact on the quality of life for communities across the country. IJNR provides an outstanding service to an industry that desperately needs their thoughtful approach to professional development.

My experience with IJNR was one of he highlights of my life and career. I learned so much and was exposed to so much pertinent information. This program is a MUST for journalists looking to expand their knowledge. Due to the IJNR tour, I have had hundreds of topics to report on. They are an amazing organization and I am very hopeful that they will be able to continue their great work.

Reporting on the environment is difficult because of the complexity and competing priorities. IJNR through its educational programs helps reporters understand all sides of the debate and then bring those points to the reader/listener in a digestible fashion.

Maggie and Frank Allen, executive directors of INJR, do an extraordinary job of introducing journalists to the importance of credible reporting about our country's natural resources. Consistently, they lead groups of interested professionals to physically investigate the critical resources in the U.S., initiating them to the historical and immediate relevance of these natural commodities to our present and future survival, and to the personal part that each of us must play in the grand scheme of preservation. Their work will ensure that our country will continue to advocate responsibility for preserving our valuable, and irreplaceable, natural resources.
