YouTube, Md. (December 8, 2011) — The Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has released a new YouTube show to compliment the Access DNR Twitter feed, Facebook page and email newsletter. The first video is available at http://youtu.be/OyWOCaQaT-Y.
“YouTube presents a great opportunity for DNR and State agencies,” said Josh Davidsburg, DNR Senior Communication Manager. “We interactive with our viewers, and give them opportunities to comment, give us a “thumbs up” and make video responses.”
The new YouTube show will feature the top DNR stories of the month along with links, so viewers can follow along with the headlines and take a more in-depth look at the topic.
