Cahaba River Society

The Mission Statement for the Cahaba River Society is “To restore and protect the Cahaba River watershed and its rich diversity of life.”

Our Programs include Recreational Outings for members and any others interested, an Environmental Education Program that has reached over 19,000 elementary through high school students, and advocacy for better river protection regulations at the local, state, and federal levels.  We also work with developers to help minimize the impacts of construction stormwater and post-construction hydrological alterations on the watershed. 

The Cahaba River is featured in the 2008 National Geographic College Atlas of the World as a global superlative of biological diversity, noting that it has more fish species per mile than any other river in North America.
