In continued efforts to increase customer service opportunities, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources launched a new webpage featuring published publications in Spanish and Hmong languages. The page provides easy access to educational and informational documents on hunter safety and regulations, fish consumption advisories, children’s activities and recycling and waste reduction tips.
A record number of people are now speaking Spanish and it remains the most spoken non-English language in the U.S., according to Pew Research. Wisconsin also has the third largest Hmong population in the United States.
“We are beyond thrilled to see this new web page,” says Elisabeth Olson, Recycling & Waste Reduction Communications Coordinator for the DNR. “The page provides a great opportunity to share our existing resources in Spanish and Hmong and expand our customer audiences.”
““I am pleased that the DNR continually looks for ways to improve service and communication with our customers through inclusion and by honoring diversity,” says Regina Kammes, Diversity and Equal Opportunity Program Specialist with the DNR. “This site is one way we strive to inform and include customers with limited English proficiency.”
