Mission Statement

National Park Service Mission:

"...to conserve the scenery and the natural and historic objects and the wild life therein and to provide for the enjoyment of the same in such a manner and by such means as will leave them unimpaired for the enjoyment of future generations."


Trash Clean-up

Give back to the Chattahoochee River as you clear out truckloads of trash including but not limited to balls, cans, bottles, Styrofoam, chairs, ice chests, and treated lumber!

Trail Building and Maintenance

With over 50 miles of trails in 15 separate park units, there is no end to trail maintenance and ample opportunities to improve the sustainability of pre-existing trails.

Non-native Species Control

Join other individuals, groups, and organizations working in teams removing non-native plants to make a noticeable difference in the parks environment.

Trail Blazers

The goal of this program is to provide an additional set of eyes and ears for park staff along the 48- mile stretch of the Chattahoochee River.

Special events

Greeting visitors, hauling boats, and staffing booths are just a few of the many tasks that are accomplished by very energetic volunteers as special events in the park.

Educational Programs

Help students learn and discover the cultural and natural lessons waiting for them in the park.

Reoccurring Activities

The park sponsors a number of activities throughout the year that are great for first time volunteers to join in and see what it’s like to be a VIP at the Chattahoochee River.
