More color, better resolution, ‘live’ updates enhance site

The Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks website has a new look.

While its new appearance is obvious, the site’s content and organization will be familiar to past visitors. Increased screen resolution accommodates more information and images, but navigating through the site is unchanged.

One change not readily apparent will be more timely updates of information on the website. With the redesigned site, and the associated conversion to new Internet servers, updates will be posted immediately, rather than once each business day as in the past. More than 100 KDWP employees regularly update their respective pages on the website, from district fisheries biologists filing fishing reports on lakes they manage to state park managers posting the latest news from their parks.

Currently, the KDWP website hosts about one million “pageviews” per month. As the most comprehensive source of information on nature-based recreation in Kansas, the website is an indispensable tool for outdoors-minded citizens of all ages.
