Outdoor writers grilling of ODNR Director to be carried in real-time

The state's outdoors writers will have grilled Natural Resources director for lunch Saturday.

And the public is welcome to follow along with the baking process by accessing the social media site, Twitter.

Meeting at the Roberts Centre in Willmington this weekend is the Outdoor Writers of Ohio, representing most of the state's outdoors media specialists from reporters and columnists to photographers to such social media sites as this blog.

Following the group's lunch at 11:30 a.m., Saturday the writers will listen to James Zehringer, the current director for the Ohio Department of Natural. His address will start at around noon.

With no set format it is expected that Zehringer will make several prepared comments. These messages will be followed by a lively and unsolicited question and answer session from the writers each of whom is free to ask the director about anything involving the Natural Resources Department.

In all likelihood, and given their controversial subject matters issues suc as "fracking," the talk of merging the Natural Resources Department with the Agricultural Department, as well as the present state of Ohio's deer management programs will all be fair game.

And the questions and the director's responses will be covered in real-time via Twitter. To follow along with the real-time Twitter feed, dial in to my Twitter account: @Fieldkorn.

Hope you can join us.
