Educators throughout Illinois now have the opportunity to obtain
instant notification about new products, scheduled workshops, and
many other events and items from the Illinois Department of Natural
Resources through the Division of Education's new list serve.
"As part of our continuing effort to
reduce the cost of doing business yet retain our effectiveness, this
list serve will be a great addition to the Division of Education,"
said Joel Brunsvold, director of the Department of Natural
Resources. "We'll be able to reduce the amount of direct mail sent
to educators and offer the opportunity for thousands of people to
instantly receive information that is important to them."
By participating in the list serve,
educators will receive e-mail messages when new materials such as
posters and activity books are available from the Department of
Natural Resources. Participants will also be made aware of upcoming
workshops and special opportunities, like the series of online
courses for graduate credit through a partnership of the IDNR
Division of Education and the University of Illinois at Springfield.
The list serve participants can also submit questions for Department
of Natural Resources personnel and discuss items of interest to the

voluntary, and list members can leave the list at any time."
