The Chieftains Museum/Major Ridge Home has teamed up with the Rome-Floyd ECO River Education Center and the Rome Braves to offer two days of family fun and river discovery.  “River Quest” is slated for this Saturday, June 16th and again on Saturday, July 14th.  Activities will be held from 9 am until 1 pm both days.

“River Quest” is a one-day program that allows participants to learn about river ecology and local history by completing a scavenger hunt booklet at both Chieftains and the ECO Center.  Those who successfully complete the hunt will receive a voucher for two free Rome Braves tickets along with an opportunity to win a door prize.  In addition, participants will be treated to a boat ride aboard the Roman Holiday.

Heather Shores, Executive Director of the Chieftains Museum/Major Ridge Home, says the goal of “River Quest” is to educate the public about the river (and its current and former inhabitants) as much as possible.

Emma Wells, Education Coordinator for the ECO Center, enthuses that the center is ‘super excited’ to team with Chieftains and the Rome Braves to offer this event.

Tickets for “River Quest” are $5 per person and may be purchased at either the Rome-Floyd ECO River Education Center or online at  For more information, contact the Chieftains Museum/Major Ridge Home at (706) 291-9494 or; you may also reach out to the ECO Center at (706) 622-6435.

Participants in this month’s event are encouraged to pick up their scavenger hunt booklets and boat passes this week at the ECO Center (after they have purchased tickets).
