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 Jefferson, Shelby, Bibb, Perry and Dallas County. 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.

What we do

Founded in 1988, our mission is to restore and protect the Cahaba River Watershed and its rich diversity of life. We impact our central Alabama watershed, the Birmingham metro area, and policy at the state, regional, and national level. Our programs achieve three goals:

Inspiring River Stewardship • Restoring the River • Building Our Impact
