Knight Center alum Andy McGlashen has a story in Audubon about how even a little bit of oil can make it hard for birds to fly.
McGlashen recently started an editorial fellowship with the birding publication in New York City. He is the former communications director for the Michigan Environmental Council.
His freelance reporting has appeared in Scientific American, Midwest Energy News, Bridge Magazine, The Daily Climate, Environmental Health News and other publications.
As a Knight Center graduate student McGlashen reported for Great Lakes Echo, the center’s non-profit environmental news service, and for MSU’s Capital News Service.
McGlashen was the 2009 recipient of the Knight Center’s Rachel Carson Award for Outstanding Graduate Student. He also has covered health and medicine for MSU’s media relations office.
This summer he is teaching an online class for the Knight Center on strategic communications for environmental good.
