DES MOINES — A newly redesigned Iowa Department of Natural Resources website provides a number of new services for Iowans.
About 150,000 unique visitors from more than 140 countries and territories go to www.iowadnr.gov
every month for information on enjoying and protecting Iowa’s natural resources. Now, they can navigate a streamlined, improved site.
New features include RSS news feeds, an event calendar and dynamic applications. The site also offers improved search functions, including finding information on specific state parks and fishing spots. Visitors will find more educational materials for teachers and more than 600 forms and permits for download.
“The DNR website is one of our most important customer service tools, and this redesign will allow us to improve our level of service to Iowans and those around the globe that use our site,” said DNR Director Roger Lande.
The site’s new design, layout and navigation were built upon research that studied what users looked for on the DNR website and how they looked for it.
