What is DelVal Outdoors?
DelVal Outdoors is a new online journalism project created by me, Kyle Bagenstose.
In my day job, I’m an investigative reporter for The USA TODAY Network, where I cover the Northeast and specialize in environmental reporting.
Previously, I was an environmental and investigative reporter for the Bucks County Courier Times, Intelligencer, and Burlington County Times for four years. I wrote about many, many environmental topics in the Delaware Valley, and twice received national honors from the Society of Environmental Journalists. That included a second place “beat reporting” award for my overall coverage of environmental issues in the valley in 2018. I also won numerous state-level journalism awards for my work.
DelVal Outdoors is an extension of that knowledge, where I intend to chronicle news and developments of interest to any outdoor lovers in the Philly metro: hikers, bikers, campers, backpackers, anglers, paddlers, birders, you name it. I hope to cover both conservation and recreation, as often as I can in my moonlight hours.
This is all new, and hopefully will be growing soon. Any thoughts, tips, comments, critiques; drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
