Review for Institutes For Journalism & Natural Resources, Missoula, MT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

IJNR provides the highest level of professional experience for serious environmental journalists. The program's field immersion is unparalleled. Fellows receive intensive training in this specialization. They also have fun in the field learning about other cultures, environmental issues and their solutions, and getting to know each other on IJNR's well prepared field trips, such as rafting on rivers, crabbing, and participating in traditional Native American ceremonies.An

Review for Institutes For Journalism & Natural Resources, Missoula, MT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

IJNR is without a doubt the most professional environmental nonprofit organization in the United States. The institute takes working journalists into the field to study first-hand some of the most pressing environmental issues of our times. Many IJNR fellows have written award-winning articles based on their experience with this NGO. Still others have written highly acclaimed books on issues they learned about as participants in this forward-looking institute that provides the skills and opportunities to truly excel in the field.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

... in my own career as a journalist and author of three books about the environment, and as a tenured professor of environmental journalism at the University of Oregon.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find the best funding opportunities to keep it vibrant and help it expand. After all, teaching others about the environment is one of the most important missions of our times.
