Do you enjoy hiking, paddling or fishing along the trails at the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area?  Are you a frequent visitor at one of our 15 units, such as Cochran Shoals, Island Ford, or Gold Branch?  Join the Trail Blazers volunteer group for the National Park Service. 

The goal of this program is to assist park visitors and to provide an additional set of eyes and ears for park staff along the 48-mile stretch of the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area.  The volunteers will attend a required four hour training course to prepare you on how to assist park visitors, report resource damage, and monitor the park for potential safety hazards.  Each member of the team will have the option to receive additional eight hour training in Outdoor First Care.  This program will help create a safer and more enjoyable experience for the more than 2.6 million park visitors at the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area.

Sign up today for the four hour training course scheduled for November 27th and 29th,  from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The Trail Blazers training course will be held at the Chattahoochee River Island Ford Lodge, 1978 Island Ford Pkwy, Sandy Springs. 

To pre-register or for more information, call 678-538-1200.
