What is the Chattahoochee Parks Conservancy all about?
We are the officially recognized friends group for the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area, which is a series of park units along 48 miles of the Chattahoochee River in the Atlanta GA metro area. We seek to help build the community of support and to promote stewardship of its natural and cultural resources. Your help is needed. The National Recreation Area provides hiking, canoeing, kayaking, and even trout fishing in an amazingly natural environment for being so close to an urban setting. It provides opportunities as a classroom for the natural environment as well as the history of those who have lived along these waters.
We hope you will join us on this journey. Be a member, help recruit others, donate, volunteer, lead. Thank you!

To register, visit
You’ll spend Saturday paddling down the river, enjoying the fall weather, and helping beautify one of Georgia’s iconic natural resources by picking up litter during the float. Kayaks, paddleboards and canoes will be available for anyone who does not own one. After the clean-up paddle, spend the evening with park rangers and new friends around the campfire, listening to great music and roasting s’mores. Saturday lunch, BBQ dinner, craft beer samples, Sunday breakfast and lots of surprises are included. On Sunday, you can also learn some new skills like navigation, mountain biking on our portable pump track or get out on the river on a stand up paddle board.
Profits from the event will benefit Chattahoochee Parks Conservancy & their support of the park's trail restoration efforts.
