Chattahoochee Parks Conservancy – REI Grant

The Chattahoochee Parks Conservancy and MTB Atlanta have applied for a $20,000 grant to resurface the mountain bike trails at Cochran Shoals/Sope Creek.  The total estimated cost of the project is $50,000 and you can help us to make up the difference by shopping at your local REI Store and then placing your Vote in the Chattahoochee Parks Conservancy bucket.  Based on the outcome of the local vote we could get an additional $10,000 towards our goal.

Please be sure to vote by April 7th so that we can improve the trails at Cochran Shoals/Sope Creek.
