Review from Guidestar
February 23, 2011

Since learning about IJNR two years ago, I remain thoroughly impressed with the role this organization plays in keeping career journalists throughout North America informed about ongoing issues of concern regarding the health of our environment. Through its in-depth topic introductions and evaluations, it reminds us all of the need to continually pay attention to the value of natural resources. The hands-on, field-expert technique it uses is especially effective. I think this approach is so much for valuable than merely speaking with business or political spokespersons.

I am a reader not a writer. After auditing the Energy Country Institute I know whatever an IJNR fellow writes I can read with confidence. When I look for unbiased, accurate information I first for articles by IJNR Fellows.

The articles written by the graduates of IJNR's institutes have been of a very high caliber and seemed to have been very well received. The concept of giving environmental writers both sides of story in order to write a fair and complete article or book seems to make a lot of sense

I'm a donor to IJNR because i believe in the importance of it's mission and the highest professional standards they applied in achieving those ends. The IJNR conference last year in Missoula was so well attended and demonstrated the continuing interest and growing need for service-teaching organizations that directly advance the need for a clear understanding of our complex social-economic interactions with the natural world. Hats Off to IJNR!

IJNR holds week-long seminars (institutes) training jounalists to probe deeply into important regional and national conservation, natural resource, and environmental issues. The fellows at these seminars incur no cost other than transportation to the location. Many attendees over the years have won major awards for jounalistic work they have produced after attending an institute session.

As I researched IJNR before making the decision to donate, I considered the value and quality of its mission and work. The words "vision", "integrity", and "enlightenment" quickly came to mind. I believe nothing informs as well as a hands-on experience, and I have been impressed by the testimonies of those whose experiences during IJNR explorations have literally changed their lives and their ability to communicate their recently acquired knowledge. In an age of some deliberate misinformation it is imperative that the public know the truth about threats to our environment as well as actions which they can personally undertake to lesson the peril.

a review of the testimonials of its work. I am an avid NPR listener, and I have heard some "graduates" of IJNR projects on the radio.

Nothing I can think of except to help spread its message and the news of the opportunities it offers.

I believe in a free and an informed press to help us make the best decisions in our democracy. IJNR's work is absolutely unique and vitally important in helping us meet that goal. For journalists who report on natural resource issues in the West, IJNR provides in-depth understanding of the players and nuances of Western resource issues. Most of our nation, plus our members of Congress, live on or near the two coasts and know relatively little about the West. But clean water, clean air, vast forests, recreation, and mining are our national heritage and are of concern to us all. It is frustrating to those of us here who are concerned about these issues that a large number of our decisions are often made elsewhere by those who are not necessarily well-informed. We at least want an informed press reporting on those issues; IJNR does a remarkable, creative job. I know that journalists keep in touch for years after they have attended IJNR programs....that speaks well of them. I am greateful for them!
