Be part of an unprecedented event on September 26 when Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area in partnership with the Chattahoochee Nature Center invite you to make America’s Best Idea – the national parks – even better. Presented by the National Park Service and National Park Foundation, it will be a special day of service and celebration for visitors and volunteers to experience their parks and catch a sneak preview of Ken Burns’s new documentary The National Parks: America’s Best Idea premiering on PBS on September 27.
"We are excited about the opportunity to greet old friends and welcome new visitors to explain how Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area is part of America’s Best Idea,” said Acting Superintendent Scott Pfeninger. “Making that best idea even better is our goal and one we can only accomplish with the support of our visitors, volunteers, and partners.”
To thank volunteers, the park will offer a sneak peak of the new Ken Burns film The National Parks: America’s Best Idea that premieres on September 27. This special screening is being presented at the Chattahoochee Nature Center, located at 9135 Willeo Road, Roswell, Georgia. The “Sneak Peak” will be held at 11:00 am., 12:30 p.m., 2:30 p.m. and 4:00 PM in the auditorium located inside of the Chattahoochee Nature Center.
The Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area event is just one of many occurring in the national parks across the country. The nationwide program is cosponsored by the National Park Foundation (www.nationalparks.org), the National Park Service’s Congressionally chartered philanthropic partner.

All Trout have a protective membrane or "slime coat" that covers their scales and is their first line of defense against infection and disease. Damage to this coating can severely hurt the fish. Wetting your hands or limiting contact with the fish increases the likelihood that the fish will survive.
