Now here’s something that slipped under the radar. DNR secretary Cathy Stepp is considering selling naming rights to state parks. No kidding!

*** Update: MARCH 7TH – It’s great to hear that DNR spokesman Bill Cosh is now saying Stepp’s comments before the committee about selling naming rights were “taken out of context”. Now they are saying that only are only considering “sponsorships with facilities or parts of the parks program“. We’re certainly glad to hear this. The sponsorship of a building or program within a public park has worked for other parks across the country and done right, would be worth consideration.
