Chattahoochee Challenge

Volunteers cleaning up stream

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, school groups, 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 registration deadline is February 1st.

Qualifying events must take place between August 1, 2019, and April 12, 2020, and be waterway-based service projects. Challenge participants can organize their own service projects or participate in events offered by the Watershed Stewardship Program. See our calendar or the event flyer under related resources 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. Qualifying events for the challenge need not be facilitated by the Watershed Stewardship Program.

Submit information on all completed service projects by April 15th. Winners will be notified by April 17th. The rafting trip will be on Saturday, April 25, 2020, and is limited to 30 participants. Rain date is Saturday, May 1, 2020. Contact us for assistance.
