Cahaba River Society is an educator, expert resource, and collaborative partner working to protect and restore the Cahaba River watershed and its rich diversity of life.

The Cahaba River is vitally important to the communities in its watershed, including parts of Alabama's Jefferson, Shelby, Bibb, Perry and Dallas Counties. The Cahaba is also the main drinking water source for the Birmingham Water Works Board service area, which serves about one-fifth of Alabamians. This “peopleshed” of residents and businesses who depend upon the Cahaba River encompasses over a million people.
