‘Reporting that I trust’: Join MinnPost’s Earth Journal supporters

Donations continue to arrive in support of MinnPost’s award-winning environmental coverage, but we still need your help.

We’re now more than halfway through our Earth Journal campaign, which encourages gifts from readers in support of our award-winning environmental reporting.

More than 25 readers have taken the opportunity to join our generous Earth Journal Circle donors in sustaining the column, which was recognized in 2015 as the best independent news blog (on any subject) by the Minnesota Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists.

We urge readers to chip in for this worthy cause by making a gift in any amount before our campaign ends on February 28.
