Observer reporter selected for fellowship

Katy Nesbitt will explore natural resource issues at Crown of the Continent Institute in Montana 

The Observer’s Katy Nesbitt will be heading to Montana at the end of the month as a fellow for the 2013 Crown of the Continent Institute.

The institute, an all-expenses paid learning expedition, is one of many offered by the Institute for Journalism and Natural Resources. Nesbitt said this institute received more applications than any other institutes offered by IJNR. She was one of 18 selected for the five-day experience that will run from June 26-30.

Participants will cover issues such as energy exploration and development, land and subsurface rights and changing realities in the region’s ecosystems.

Nesbitt said she began covering Wallowa County as a general reporter, but that has lended itself to covering agriculture and natural resources, especially with recent controversies over wolf populations.

“It’s been a big part of my job here in Wallowa County,” she said.

Nesbitt said as she began covering more natural resource issues and thinking about her future, she joined the Society of Environmental Journalists, which also promotes the IJNR. Of the IJNR workshops offered, the one in Montana will cover issues similar to those Nesbitt covers in Eastern Oregon so she applied.

Nesbitt said she is not sure about specific topics that will be discussed.

“I would imagine with the glaciers, climate change,” she said. 

The group will be based at the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Ranch and will include trips to Glacier National Park and the Blackfeet Reservation.

“I am excited,” Nesbitt said.
