“We’re doing a variety of activities to involve our constituents in the headwaters,” said Mallory Pendleton, Headwaters outreach manager with Chattahoochee Riverkeeper’s Gainesville office. “From hikes to fishing events, we’ll have events for all ages and interests.”

On Saturday, April 16, CRK will benefit from RiverFest, the launch party for Left Nut Brewing Company’s newest brew, Pure Source IPA. Entertainment, food trucks, cornhole and fly-fishing demonstrations will take place from 1 to 8 p.m. at the brewery, 2100 Atlanta Highway, Gainesville. The company will donate a portion of the proceeds to CRK for every Pure Source IPA sold through the summer.

The group will celebrate Earth Day on Friday, April 22, with a hike at Buck Shoals Wildlife Management Area with the Soque River Watershed Association.

Other upcoming events include “All-kids fish Event in Helen” and a sunset cruise on Lake Lanier on the CRK floating classroom, the 40-foot Chota Princess II motorized catamaran.
