Come out to 2014 Back to the Chattahoochee River Race and Festival on June 14, 2014. The race and festival celebrates the Chattahoochee River, while fostering a sense of community around the river. Proceeds go to support CRK’s mission to protect and preserve the river system for the people and wildlife that depend upon it. The event is organized and presented by Chattahoochee Riverkeeper (CRK) in partnership with the National Park Service, Fulton County, and the City of Roswell.
Chapter activists will be tabling the festival at the end of the race held at Riverside Park in Roswell, from 10 am to 3 pm.
