Have you ever wondered how many different species you have seen in the park over the years? It's time to download and print a copy of one or all of the checklist below and start keeping track. If you happen to find a species in the park that is not on the list take a clear photograph and note its location. Report your finding to the park to help support the park scientist. This is a great way to become a Citizen Scientist!
Educational Programs (PDF)
The Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area strives to help educate people of all ages to the park and its resources. We offer curriculum-based programming, free of charge, to educational groups upon request.
These workshops are open to private and public school teachers, nature center instructors, resources agency educators, youth organization leaders, and all interested volunteers. This brochure will tell you all about the workshops, dates, times, location and cost. This is a great way for teachers to receive PLU staff development credit.
Give your memory a break! Nearly every trail junction throughout the park has a map of the unit with your current location. But what happens when you need a map between trail junctions? You hope you memorized the right map features from the last map you looked at… or pull out your own map from your back pocket. Here is the place to download and print the trail maps in the park. Happy Trails!
