Learning Series: A Conversation with Environment Reporter Alex Kuffner

September 19, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Registration required — see link below.

Join the Barrington Land Conservation Trust for a conversation with Alex Kuffner, Environment Reporter for The Providence Journal.

From offshore wind and forever chemicals to bird flu and pine beetles, Alex Kuffner covers the full range of environmental issues facing Rhode Islanders. Join Alex for a conversation about headline-making environmental concerns. Bring your questions! This is your chance to get inside the story and hear, first-hand, from an award-winning journalist reporting on stories that affect your life and the health of our planet.

Among his many accolades, Alex won the Silver Award from the American Association for the Advancement of Science for his story, “Coastal Erosion: The Smallest State and Why It’s Getting Smaller.”

Alex won a first-place award from the Society of Environmental Journalists for articles he wrote detailing the arrival of an invasive species of fierce-stinging jellyfish in Rhode Island waters, a scourge of tree-killing insects and drought that have defoliated portions of Rhode Island’s forests, and the expansive growth of solar farms in the state. The judges described Kuffner’s reporting as “a model for small-market journalists covering an environmental beat: clear, thorough, objective coverage on a range of important local issues” (as reported in The Providence Journal).

The venue is kid-friendly and accessible.
