DEP Linkups Workshop

The DEP Linkups are free and held bi-monthly. These events are meaningful platforms for "connectivity." They encourage information sharing networks among stakeholders, regulated communities, local businesses and government agencies. Our meetings enhance the department's mission to protect Florida's natural resources together. By providing this regular program, attendees have the opportunity to learn, update and share information with a guest speaker who provides channels of participatory discussion with our regulated and non-regulated community.
