The Office of Communications is ODNR’s central resource for members of the media seeking information, interviews, and visual assets. Our office assists journalists in obtaining interviews with ODNR experts and providing timely information for media stories.
We can also connect you with the appropriate contacts within our divisions or at our properties across the state. We are committed to sharing news with reporters and helping journalists secure expert interviews, information, photos, and videos to enhance their reports.
Please let us know as quickly as possible when you are interested in an on-camera interview so we can provide you with an expert who will best meet your needs. When deadlines are tight, we will make every effort to get you what you need.
ODNR News Releases
The ODNR Flickr account contains a wide range of downloadable images for use by the media. These visual assets are free to use. If you are seeking a visual asset that is not on the ODNR Flickr page, please contact our office.
Filming or Photography Requests
Permission must be obtained from our agency before any commercial filming or recording may occur on ODNR properties if your presence will interrupt the experience of other visitors. Please contact the appropriate land manager (State Park, Wildlife, Forest or Preserve manager) to discuss your project and submit the required documentation.
Request Permission to use our Logo
If you would like to use the ODNR logo or the logo from any of our divisions, please email Shaun Casbarro with a specific explanation of how and why the logo is being requested.
