All Terrain Georgia is an initiative of Aimee Copeland Foundation (ACF) in partnership with Georgia Department of Natural Resources. ATG enables people with mobility impairments to enjoy the nurturing and healing qualities that the vast natural resources of our state has to offer. We have a vision of an inclusive Georgia where everyone has the opportunity to live and play in their own community.
ACF, in partnership with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources (DNR), houses and maintains all-terrain chairs (ATC) for free rental by eligible users. ATCs may be utilized for hiking, hunting, fishing and other outdoor education and recreational events sponsored by the ACF, DNR, and/or partnering organizations.
ATC participants must be accompanied by a “Buddy” for optimal safety. ATG is currently looking for more volunteers to assist with this task so that anyone can use the ATCs, regardless of social supports they may or may not have available to them.
All Terrain Georgia currently provides ATCs in the following locations:
- Charlie Elliot Wildlife Preserve
- Panola Mountain State Park
- Fort Yargo State Park
- Cloudland Canyon State Park
- Don Carter State Park
- Hard Labor Creek State Park
- Red Top State Park
- Sweetwater Creek State Park
- Pickett’s Mill State Park
- Etowah Indian Mounds
- Newman Wetlands Center
