Chattahoochee Riverkeeper is pleased to host this paddle cleanup in partnership with the City of Chattahoochee Hills and Georgia DNR and Wildlife Resources Division. We will be paddling from the Highway 166 DNR Boat Ramp to Campbellton Park Boat Ramp in south Fulton near Chattahoochee Hills. This five-mile section of river is mostly slow moving with a few moderate riffles.
Specific trip details, including the address of where we’ll be meeting, will be emailed to you a few days prior to the trip date. Volunteers must provide their own kayak or canoe, paddling gear, water and lunch/snacks. CRK can provide a few sit-on-top kayaks as they are available. Additional details will be provided in your confirmation email.
We will meet at the put-in at 8 a.m., unload boats, then drive to the take-out. A shuttle van will return us to the put-in. Estimated time to paddle is 9 a.m. and between approximately 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. Plan to bring a lunch/snacks for after the trip as there are no stopping points in this section.
All participants must be able to swim efficiently and get in and out of a kayak easily (i.e. those with knee or back injuries may have difficulty). Paddling uses your core muscles, arms, and shoulders. Anyone with injuries in these areas may have difficulty. Please consult your physician if you are concerned about participating.
If paddling solo, the paddler must be at least 15 years old and accompanied by a parent/guardian. If paddling tandem, youth must be at least 8 years of age and accompanied by an adult at least 21 years.
