Alabama Scenic River Trail chapters are community-based organizations that support river trail development and recreation in Alabama. These organizations exist to carry out our mission of promoting recreation, conservation, education, and community development.

Chapters exist for local paddlers who wish to host paddling events, improve state waterways, and support creek cleanups on the ASRT. Members act as the eyes and ears for ASRT’s state leaders, identifying opportunities and problems that arise on the river trail system.

ASRT chapters can establish a geographical range around any river or stream, or any part of a river or stream, on the river trail. They are eligible to receive funding for community projects and chapters may organize informally or as a non-profit organization.
