Erin Shaw has been hosting the “Nature’s Corner” program through the cable TV station (Ch. 6) here in Lebanon for many years. Her 100th program will be recorded and aired March 27, 2017. Below is a note from Joe Hackman, the Production Manager at Channel 6. Joe’s note was addressed to the City Manager of Lebanon as well as to the Deputy City Manager.
'I wanted to make you aware of the fact that in March we will record and air the 100th episode of "Nature's Corner", a monthly nature program that has been on Channel 6, continuously, since May of 2008. The program is hosted by Erin Shaw, a Naturalist for the Ohio Department of Natural Resources based at Caesar Creek State Park. Erin will be a guest on "The City Show" on March 28th to talk about her experiences with the program and the plans for the future of the show. This program is one of our highest performing shows on our On Demand web site, thanks in part to the promotion done by the ODNR and Dave Woehr through the Ohio Certified Volunteer Naturalist organization. Erin has worked on this show as a part of her job with ODNR, even when her hours were cut back a few years ago, and receives no compensation from the City of Lebanon. The 100th episode will debut on The Lebanon Channel on Monday, March 27th at 8:00am.'
The “Nature’s Corner” program often features’ area OCVNs as guests where they talk with Erin about a new topic each month. The program definitely promotes nature education – a key component of the OCVN mission.
The “Nature’s Corner” program is archived with links each month on Lebanon’s city website.
