DNR expands social media outreach to include Pinterest*

In an ongoing effort to increase customer service opportunities, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has launched its presence on Pinterest. The social media site focuses on sharing photos and helping users plan everything from dinner to trips to projects around the home.
DNR Pinterest
Pinterest is one of the fastest-growing social media sites with an estimated 70 million users.
“We are constantly evaluating how to best reach our customers and we feel Pinterest gives us a unique opportunity to reach out to women who may not know the services and opportunities the DNR provides,” said Trish Nitschke, DNR social media and outreach coordinator.
Pinners can find the page at pinterest.com/wdnr. The State Parks and forests Pinterest board is located at http://www.pinterest.com/wdnr/state-parks-forests/
“There they will discover wonderful information about our state parks, things to do with their kids, and even craft projects for those rainy (or soon to be snowy) days,” Nitschke said. “We welcome repins and encourage users to tag us @Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources in their pins.”
