Happy Earth Day! Check out these ways to celebrate with Cahaba River Society! 🌎

As we celebrate Earth Day together, we are overjoyed to launch back into river trips and bring YOU along with us. We have learned so much from the pandemic and have been inspired by your support last year which made it possible for us to pivot to meet the challenges facing us in protecting the River and serving our community during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Earth Day message from Executive Director Beth Stewart

I’m Beth Stewart, executive director of Cahaba River Society. We hope that you, your family, and the people you care about are safe and well.

We want to share with you what your Cahaba River Society team is getting done during social distancing, and ways you can help.

As we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day, we are more aware than ever of the need to educate and empower young leaders, representing the full diversity of our communities, who will take up the charge to address environmental issues on a local and global scale. We are proud to have brought over 38,500 youth into the River for hands-on environmental education.
