INSTITUTES FOR JOURNALISM & NATURAL RESOURCES
March 1, 2011

It was in the summer of 2000 that I went to Maine as a Fellow to learn to be a better natural resources reporter. The exposure to how to ask probing questions and to come up with a more complete understanding of complicated topics was extremely valuable. Like most reporters at small newspapers, I have to move quickly from one complex topic to another and get it right. And be able to pull readers into stories and topics and hold their attention. The travels tested my stamina, too. Unfortunately, Frank had to leave part-way through the trip to keep an eye on his house in Montana, threatened with wildfires. Otherwise I might have learned more about setting up a story. But it was a wonderful experience!

The Great!

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

I took an eight-day trip in Maine to see salmon farms and wild salmon, blueberry barrens, forestry practices, lobstering, and many other natural resource stories.

Ways to make it better...

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

Make sure that IJNR had an endowment that would ensure its survival.

MY ROLE:
Client Served & I learned to be a better natural resources reporter.
