It seems like only yesterday that Chattahoochee Riverkeeper launched our first patrol boat and started pulling trash out of the Chattahoochee River, its lakes and tributaries.
Now – 21 years and more than 800 tons of trash later – billions of gallons of raw sewage and polluted stormwater no longer flow into the river system every year.
Nearly 45,000 students have received hands-on science lessons aboard Georgia's only floating classrooms.
Thousands of acres of land along the river and tributaries have been protected as green space.
Hundreds of volunteers and interns have worked with CRK staff to collect and analyze 5,000 water samples – data that has helped stop pollution in communities and neighborhoods throughout the watershed.
Your gift will put fuel in our patrol boat, allow us to purchase water testing supplies and provide scholarships for underserved students to participate in one of our floating classrooms.
Please help CRK protect Georgia's liquid lifeline with a donation to our Georgia Gives campaign. As always, we pledge your gifts will be used with the efficiency that has continually earned us a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator for 8 consecutive years.
