Habitat Restoration Water Quality Monitoring, Dam Removals, and Invasive Species Eradication sets the stage for native fish and plants to be reintroduced and the uniqueness of the Chattahoochee River preserved. . Access Public waters belong to the public and we work with private landowners, utility companies, and public entities to develop new access points and maintain existing ones.
Education and Outreach We believe it is our responsibility to document and share all of the work being done in the ACF Basin by NGO's, state agencies, private companies, and volunteers. An educated and informed public is the best tool for continuing the restoration of the Chattahoochee River and ACF Basin.
Recruitment and Retention We want to do more than inspire. We want to create opportunities for citizens to become empowered conservationists who will spend their lifetime improving their surroundings for themselves and their families. We can't do it alone, we need your help.
Trash and Plastics Litter enters our waterways through storm drains and runoff. We remove this trash from the river to clean the environment and raise awareness as to how many single-use plastic products are wrongly disposed of everyday.
The Swim Guide Our Recreational Season Water Quality Program. We measure bacteria levels at popular recreation areas every week during the summer and post the results online or send them to your phone via The Swim Guide app!
Dam Removal The Middle and Lower Watersheds of the Chattahoochee River are pockmarked with abandoned dams on both the main channel and tributaries. By removing these dams and restoring connectivity to the watershed, native species are able to thrive and recreation opportunities are increased.
