Riverside Revelry – A Celebration of Friends of the River


Event co-chairs Mary Calhoun and Will Huff invite you to join The Trust for Public Land on September 15, as we gather on the banks of the Chattahoochee River to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area (CRNRA). Held every fall, the Celebration of Land always features fantastic food and great conversation during a casual evening with park-loving friends. This year’s event will honor Friends of the River – the visionary leaders who created the CRNRA.

Where: Paces Mill Unit CRNRA
When: Saturday, September 15, 2018
Time: 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm
