The Chattahoochee River is a mecca for summer recreation, like tubing (above), and a source for water and power for a large number of Georgia residents.

“The Chattahoochee River User’s Guide” author Joe Cook will discuss the mighty Hooch and how to protect it on Aug. 14 at the Decatur Library. The talk begins at 7:15 p.m.

The Chattahoochee River is one of the premier waterways of Georgia and the Southeast. It is a mecca for summer recreation, a priceless natural resource that provides water and power for a great number of Georgia’s residents, and an essential component to the region’s ecosystem.

The guide, which has 200 color photographs and 32 user-friendly maps, traces the 430-mile river from its headwaters near Jacks Knob in northeastern Georgia to the Apalachicola River.

It provides cultural and natural history and presents river issues in a manner that will inspire users to help protect their local waterways.

The Decatur Library is at 215 Sycamore St. in Decatur.
