Three former Spokesman-Review reporters will be honored for their reporting on environmental issues and the outdoors during the March 2 Winter Waters celebration in Spokane.
Julie Titone, Rich Landers and Karen Dorn Steele will receive the Watershed Hero Award at the annual event, which is put on by the Sierra Club’s Upper Columbia River Group and the Center for Environmental Law and Policy.
Winter Waters runs from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at the Patsy Clark Mansion, 2208 W. Second Ave. Tickets are $35. They can be purchased at the door, but RSVPs are requested through CELP.org.
Dorn Steele’s work included investigative reporting on the Hanford Nuclear Reservation. Landers, the longtime Outdoors editor, brought stories from around the Columbia Basin and beyond to readers. Titone reported on wildlife, rivers and tribes struggling with the region’s legacy of mining pollution.
