Meryl Phair would do anything for a good story like sleeping with wolves or counting every bird in Central Park (sort of). As a reporter for O'Rourke Media Group she covers local news and happenings around Colorado’s Park County for The Fairplay Flume. She also publishes Field Notes, a biweekly Substack newsletter on how the climate crisis is shaping everything in our world from wilderness to witches. 


A recent graduate of NYU's Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute with a master's in Magazine & Digital Storytelling, Meryl’s writing and photography have been published in Earth Island Journal, Salon, Scienceline, Dirt Magazine, Curio and others.
