My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Institutes For Journalism & Natural Resources, Missoula, MT, USA
As a journalist, my fellowship with IJNR helped me see how much is possible in environmental reporting, and challenged me to meet the inherent promise in every story I tell. Our 10-day trip was intense. We covered hundreds of miles and talked about climate change, water use, hatcheries v. wild fish, logging practices, grazing standards, the reintroduction of wolves and more. We got to meet interesting people on all sides of every issue. I can't imagine how an organization could touch more hot topics and go more into depth. As the pressure builds -- on the natural environment and within the journalism industry -- the importance of IJNR will only rise.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
IJNR has changed -- for the better! - the way that I approach my job every day.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
expand it so that more journalists could participate.
