Ask Questions of Our Experts on Facebook on April 19
The Ask a S.C. Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Expert series allows our Facebook fans to get answers to your questions about your favorite topics. During each session, DNR employees will go onto the DNR Facebook page and answer as many questions as possible in an hour. We will host different experts about different topics from all of the divisions at different times during the year. All topics, times and experts are subject to change.
The latest round gets underway at 12 noon until 1p.m. on April 19 with the topic of "Freshwater Fishing in South Carolina." Answering questions this session will be Ross Self, Chief of Freshwater Fisheries along with a member of DNR Law Enforcement.
Participation requires a free Facebook user account. Visit and "Like" DNR on Facebook. You can e-mail questions before the talk to firstname.lastname@example.org or post questions on DNR's Facebook wall during the talk. Please use the comment feature under the expert's post instead of starting a new post. The expert will answer as many questions as possible in the time frame. All questions during the conversation should be related to the topic and field of expertise.
Some of the upcoming topics include:
- DNR State Lakes
- Wild hogs, where do we go from here?
