As we venture into a new decade, Chattahoochee Riverkeeper is making a pledge to celebrate ALL of the communities within the Chattahoochee Watershed that rely on a forever clean and sustainable Chattahoochee River.  From fly shops to outfitters, guide services, craft breweries, and more – Quality Hooch will continue the partnership with Orvis to raise funds to support CRK’s water quality monitoring programs within the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area, including CASSI, BacteriAlert, Neighborhood Water Watch, and trash cleanups.
