The Riparian Restoration and Education Project, a project of the Upper Chattahoochee Riverkeeper, focuses efforts in the upper reaches of the Chattahoochee River watershed. Working with state and federal scientists, resource managers, local governments, and citizens we am characterizing the upper basin to prioritize subwatersheds for protection and/or restoration work. The project also includes the development and implementation of an instream and riparian stream restoration. This community-based project will result in a "mad map" for conservation efforts in the headwaters region. "Protect the best, then restore and reconnect the rest" (Pacific Rivers Council 1996)
