Chattahoochee Challenge

Chattahoochee Volunteer Challenge was created to encourage community members to participate in and organize waterway-related volunteer events in Cobb County. This is a fun and exciting opportunity for clubs, scouts, families, community organizations, and businesses.

Why participate in the Challenge? At the end of the contest, the individuals or groups that have accumulated the most volunteer service hours will win a free rafting trip on the Chattahoochee River with a park ranger from the National Park Service! Plus, the watershed, and ultimately local waterways will be cleaner and healthier.

To participate in the Challenge, register your group using the link below. The deadline for registering is December 1st.

Qualifying events must take place between August 1st, 2017 and April 22nd, 2018 and be waterway services projects. Challenge participants can organize their own service projects or participate in events offered by the Watershed Stewardship Program. See our calendar or the flyer below for information about upcoming events. If organizing your own event, the Watershed Stewardship Program can provide supplies and support for waterway cleanup, storm drain marking, and privet pull projects.

Submit information on all completed service projects by April 22nd. Winners will be notified by May 1st. A rafting trip on Saturday, May 5th is limited to 30 participants. Rain date is Saturday, May 19th. Contact us for assistance.
