Terminal West Presents: CRK's 20th Anniversary River Revival

On May 8, Chattahoochee Riverkeeper (CRK) will host the 20th Anniversary River Revival concert, presented by Terminal West.

Last year, River Revival went on hiatus. This year, CRK is relaunching the event, and raising the bar. We've changed the location; we've changed the theme; we've secured great entertainment.

And, the best part is that everyone is invited!

Not only will CRK be celebrating the Chattahoochee River, but we’re also celebrating 20 years as the only environmental nonprofit dedicated solely to the cause.

Musical guests include: The New Mastersounds, a jazz fusion band out of Leeds, England; Jeff Austin and the Here & Now (pictured); and Turkuaz.

So, be sure to mark off May 8 on your calendar. Doors open at 7 p.m., and music begins at 8 p.m. Tickets are just $25, and can be purchased via Terminal West.

CRK is ready for the reboot of River Revival. Are you?

CRK Celebrates the Art of Water with Special Exhibit

Our Middle Chattahoochee Region office will be hosting a special, river-themed art exhibit on May 2.

Everyone is invited to this free event, entitled "The Art of Water," 5 p.m. - 10 p.m. at the Cochran Gallery in the downtown square of LaGrange, Ga.

The show will feature local artists, photographers, craftsmen and sculptors displaying river-related works of art, as well as live music for guests to enjoy.

We also plan to showcase student art.

As night falls, there also will be a screening of Who Owns Water, a documentary featuring David and Michael Hanson as they paddle the length of the Chattahoochee River and collect stories along the way.

This is up from 3.6 tons in 2013, and more than any year in the past. A total of 580 -- more than last year -- dedicated half a day to the effort.
