Piper McDaniel

Current: Investigative Fellow at  Mother Jones  where I cover climate change, extremism and other things.

Bylines: Los Angeles Times, NPR, Huffington Post, High Country News and others.

Recent: I covered Portland protests for The Oregonian.

For one year I tracked and reported on the recovery of 121 evacuees of the Camp Fire for this engagement project.

I also developed The Rural News Network, a pilot dissemination project exploring new ways to produce and disseminate news in collaboration with 17 existing rural news outlets.

I won a Los Angeles Associated Press Award for this.

I’m based in the Pacific Northwest and I write about the environment and other interesting things. I’ve written for the Los Angeles Times, Huffington Post, The Oregonian, High Country News, Economic Hardship Reporting Project and others.
