INSTITUTES FOR JOURNALISM & NATURAL RESOURCES
February 28, 2011
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.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
my studies of environmental public policy in college and in job searches in the field.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
get them more resources. Programs are expensive, but the value to the professionals and the communities they ultimately serve is invaluable.
Volunteer & helped with logistics on many trips.
