Less than 16 months after its launch more than 11,000 people “like” the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources’ Facebook page. The page focuses on recreating in Wisconsin’s outdoors.
“Our Facebook page was designed to create excitement about the wonderful outdoor opportunities our state provides,” saidTrish Ossmann, public affairs manager for the DNR Northeast Region and one of DNR’s Facebook administrators. “We are seeing great success in Facebook as well as our other social media channels. It’s great to see so many people sharing their winter experiences like ice fishing, snowmobiling or taking part in other great activities like candlelight ski and hike events in our state parks.”
DNR launched its page, facebook.com/WIDNR, in November of 2011 as a way to create another venue for customers to contact the agency and share their experiences in Wisconsin’s outdoors.
