Forest Service Releasing Mobile App

The Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest is going mobile.

The Forest Service announced recently that the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest has released its first mobile app that helps visitors locate recreational activities on the two national forests in Georgia.

According to the Forest Service, the app is free and delivers information about 49 recreation sites.

In addition, officials said the app delivers forest news and alerts to visitors so they can keep informed about changing conditions while they are on the go.

According to Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest Supervisor Betty Mathews, the goal of this project is to enhance experiences for forest visitors who use mobile devices.

She added that the app will guide visitors to featured recreation sites that provide a quality and convenient experience.

Mathews went on to say that the app also offers local communities a creative marketing tool to attract tourists interested in outdoor recreation opportunities.

The app for the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest is designed for both Apple and Android smart phones and tablets.
