Welcome, new board members

  • Hare

  • Stevens

 

HCN is happy to announce that Wayne Hare and Jane Ellen Stevens recently joined our board of directors.

A long-ago transplant from the East, Wayne became a "native Westerner" while working as a ranger with the Bureau of Land Management in western Colorado, patrolling the Colorado River and McInnis Canyons National Conservation Area. Prior to that, he spent several years as an interpretive ranger and later worked as a backcountry ranger with the National Park Service at Canyonlands and Rocky Mountain national parks. Wayne has served as a team-building instructor for Outward Bound in Boston and as assistant director of Outdoor Programs at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire. Before he was a ranger, Wayne worked on several projects with the National Park Service to increase the cultural diversity of both staff and visitors to natural parks. He has written and spoken about the lack of diversity on public lands and its causes and effects.

A journalist for 30 years, Jane began her career at the Boston Globe. She founded a syndicated science and technology feature service with 20 newspaper clients worldwide, including the Washington Post and Asahi Shimbun's AERA Magazine. She lived and worked in Kenya and Indonesia. Jane has written for magazines, including National Geographic, and was among the first group of videojournalists at New York Times Television. She's done multimedia reporting for the New York Times and Discovery Channel. Jane taught the first multimedia reporting class at the University of California, Berkeley, Graduate School of Journalism, and helped set up the Knight Digital Media Center's multimedia reporting workshops. She has worked with several news organizations in the process of transitioning to Webcentric newsrooms, including the Ventura County Star, National Public Radio and High Country News. Jane is currently a Fellow at the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute at the University of Missouri.

PRAISE FOR A "YUCKY" STORY
Peter Friederici's story "Facing the Yuck Factor" was recently recognized by the Society of Environmental Journalists in its 2007-2008 contest. The story, which ran in the Sept. 17, 2007, issue, got second place in the Outstanding Small Market Reporting category. Friederici described how some Western cities are starting to recycle effluent into drinking water as population growth and climate change stress water supplies. The intial reaction from the judges, according to SEJ, was, " ‘Wow! How yucky is that!' It was immediately followed by the recognition that Friederici had eloquently shown the future face of water conservation: something that is cute when the astronauts do it, but hard to contemplate down here."
