Support Your Park
Through the years, support of national parks has been critical. In fact, without the support of the people, the National Park System would be just a dream. The Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area is no different. Its existence is due to the hard work and dedication of a small group of people. Thanks to their efforts during the 1970s, 48 miles of the Chattahoochee River has been preserved for the use and enjoyment of all people, today and in the future.
Now is the time to expand the group of founders to include the group of benefactors! Read on to see how you can join in the support of your park, Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area.
