As part of the “My Home. My Springs.” initiative, we are asking Florida communities to help educate the public on the importance of Florida springs and springs protection efforts. DEP has developed the below social media toolkit that includes social media graphics and example posts formatted for Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. You can help by sharing the images and posts on your own social media platforms, and using the hashtag, #MySprings on any Florida springs-related posts.
