"Shooting the Hooch" is an essential southern pastime on a hot summer day, but the Chattahoochee River also offers recreational opportunities along its shores. No matter where you choose to explore, remember to leave your destination better than you found it. Trash left on trails, sidewalks, and parking lots gets carried into local waterways when it rains, harming wildlife and water quality. We can all do our part to make sure these beautiful greenspaces stay beautiful!
