ChattahoocheeNow: A hyperlocal site for national forest
Schnellinger designed, launched, administered and produced content for the news website ChattahoocheeNow, with the aim of reaching the 2 million annual visitors to the Chattachoochee National Forest and the population of the 18 counties bordering the forest.
She also recruited, trained, mentored and supervised three college interns to write news and features for the site, as well as a group of a half-dozen volunteer photography contributors.
Although the site drew a loyal readership within months, overseas projects and other work commitments took precedence and the site was eventually discontinued.
