Social Media Toolkit

 Telling the story of river transportation, barges and towboats, locks and dams.....it's not something most people think about.  We get it.

 

But social media provides an outlet to get our messages out to the public - and to elected officials.  Copy/paste any of the messages below to tell your story on social media - and include @WaterwaysCouncl so we can share on our feeds too.  Feel free to create your own, too.  Help spread the word that #RiversMoveAmerica!
