Cahaba River Fry-Down: Fried Down, But Not Out

The Fry-Down is the Cahaba River Society’s largest fundraiser, allowing Cahaba River Society to continue its work to restore and protect the Cahaba (Alabama’s longest remaining free flowing river), the river’s watershed and its rich diversity of life. This year, since our community can’t be together in-person, we have a unique, interactive and FREE experience that everyone can enjoy!

Cahaba Current: October 2019

We believe that people protect the places to which they feel a connection, and one of the most important parts of our mission has always been connecting people to the Cahaba River so that they feel inspired and empowered for its protection.

Through 2018-19, Cahaba River Society has partnered with a number of different arts organizations and artists to explore new ways to connect people to the Cahaba through visual arts, poetry, film, and music.
