DNR starts YouTube channel

With Indiana DNR’s new YouTube channel, Hoosiers can experience the outdoors at the click of a button.

The channel is available on DNR’s website, at dnr.IN.gov/7426.htm.

Forty-five videos are already featured on the channel. Viewers can learn about Monument City, a former town normally submerged under Salamonie Lake, which was exposed during this summer’s drought. They can watch Gov. Mitch Daniels commemorate the groundbreaking of a visitors center at Goose Pond Fish & Wildlife Area, learn how to fillet a crappie, or take in a time-lapse recording of the Perseid meteor shower over Lake Michigan.

A video that features DNR biologist Chad Stewart discussing changes to deer hunting regulations has been seen nearly 6,000 times.

The videos on the YouTube channel are produced by videographer Michael Carney, who joined DNR this year for the second time, having worked previously as a seasonal naturalist at Brown County State Park.

“Video adds a powerful tool for telling the DNR story, and YouTube gives us the forum to share those stories with a broader audience,” DNR communications director Phil Bloom said. “Despite little fanfare about our videos, the viewing numbers we have seen so far tell us we are on the right track.”
