My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Institutes For Journalism & Natural Resources, MIssoula, MT, USA
I am a board member now, but my experience with IJNR started when I went on one of its immersion learning expeditions as fellow back in the late '90s. I saw, first-hand, clear cuts, sustainable forestry, lobster fishing, paper producing, and other aspects of environmental journalism that I'd had to write about previously but had to do so from a distance. I made valuable contacts with experts, got some good story ideas, and experienced rejuvenating camaraderie with fellow journalists. IJNR is providing an invaluable service as it works to improve the quality and quantity of environmental journalism.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
...many articles spawned by story ideas from various Institutes written by many fellows.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Clone Frank and Maggie. They do the work of many.
