Description:  

The people, organizations, businesses and foundations that helped create the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area (CRNRA), beginning in the 1970s, knew that they were taking on a task that would provide benefits to millions of people well into the future – people that they would never know.

Chattahoochee Parks Conservancy (CPC) is committed to continuing the legacy of those inside and outside of the government agencies whose vision resulted in our national recreation area: a vibrant and growing public green space that also helps protect a river that is the drinking water source for millions of people.

While nearly 7,000 acres of parkland are permanently protected as part of the CRNRA, the trails and facilities in the park are being loved almost to death, especially in high-use areas. CPC is raising awareness and funds to restore and connect trails, improve park units and visitor facilities, acquire additional land and create a history of early park beginnings. In alignment with National Park Service priorities, we are currently raising funds to support legacy projects that include: - A campaign to restore and connect CRNRA trails beginning with a comprehensive trail assessment and management study - Planning and implementation of improvements in the Paces Mill and Vickery Creek/Allenbrook units - Enhancements to the CRNRA’s National Water Trail, to include camping and launch sites - An administrative park history that includes video interviews with people who helped create the CRNRA.

Chattahoochee Parks Conservancy (CPC) is membership-based and volunteer powered. We need your volunteer assistance and your membership/donations to help us make tangible improvements to the park we all love and enjoy.

CPC is led by a board of volunteers with expertise in nonprofit management, development, financial accounting, law, environmental education, trail management, communications, paddle sports and event planning. We host an annual membership celebration to report on the organization’s activities and to thank our volunteers.

In 2016, CPC developed a strategic plan to significantly enhance our organizational capacity to achieve our mission with new branding, a strengthened presence in the community, new partnerships, a membership campaign and an expansion of our board. We also have improved our systems management and protocols and hired a part-time administrative assistant to help handle our growth.

In a short period of time, we have tripled our membership, increased our social media presence and strengthened our leadership team. But, we still have a long way to go to reach our goals – and we need your support TODAY!

Description:  

Today, there are more great places to live in Atlanta than ever! Whether you want a chic loft with a skyline view, or a quaint cottage with a neighborly front porch and lots of green space, you can find it. Our area remains one of the most reasonably priced in the country, too.

As a resident of Atlanta since the 70's I have seen our city and metro area grow and change. Intown neighborhoods that were once rundown and neglected have blossomed as the result of the hard work of many neighbors, real estate investments by private citizens,and the efforts of city governments to add parks, sidewalks and other amenities.

As I help you achieve your goals in real estate, I would also like to assist you in reducing your energy costs. Buildings contribute 40 to 50 % of the greenhouse gases that are changing our climate, but there are easy measures you can take for a more comfortable home that has a reduced impact on the planet. I hold the Ecobroker designation as a result of my study in energy efficiency and environmental health. I recently earned the LEED Green Associate designation from the United States Green Building Council.
