Mary Mertz, ODNR director, on Town Hall Ohio

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources was created by the Ohio legislature in 1949. Its mission today: to ensure a balance between wise use and protection of our natural resources for the benefit of all. That balance can, at times, be challenging, when you’re considering ODNR’s vast portfolio of water resources, forests, state parks, energy development and much more. The person Governor DeWine asked to keep everyone happy is Mary Mertz, director of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. She visits with Ohio Farm Bureau’s Adam Sharp on this episode of Town Hall Ohio.
