RiverWay South is designed to work with communities within the
Apalachicola, Chattahoochee, and Flint (ACF) watershed to preserve,
protect and promote the unique heritage of the watershed while infusing
new economic life into those communities struggling to survive. Although
three states and three rivers are involved, ACF represents one
magnificent river system.
We are working with counties in the Chattahoochee, Flint, and
Apalachicola watershed to stimulate economies through cultural heritage
tourism and by supporting and encouraging river excursions and
recreation on the river. RiverWay South is a not for profit organization funded by a USDA Rural
Business Opportunity Grant.
