The Chattahoochee River is integral to our lives. From supplying our drinking water and electricity to nourishing our food and providing habitat for fish and wildlife, the Chattahoochee River flows through us.
For 22 years, Chattahoochee Riverkeeper has worked tirelessly to keep watch over this precious resource. With the support of our 7,000+ dedicated members we have:
Removed more than 850 tons of trash and tires.
Stopped billions of gallons of raw sewage from flowing into the river system.
Restored and protected thousands of acres of land along the river and its tributaries.
Provided nearly 50,000 students and teachers with a one-of-a-kind environmental education on board our two floating classrooms.
Collected and analyzed 20,000 water samples with hundreds of volunteers.
Together, we have made a difference in securing a cleaner and healthier river, but there is still more work to do as our river faces many threats.
Please help protect our liquid lifeline by making a donation to our Georgia Gives campaign today.
Your gift will be used with the efficiency and stewardship that has earned us a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator for 9 consecutive years.
