Cahaba River Watershed

The Cahaba River Watershed is unique among North American rivers, with a greater diversity of fish species for its size than any other river. It is a critical habitat for eight endangered species of mussels and contains the largest remaining population of the shoals spider (Cahaba) lily. The Cahaba River flows through the largest metropolitan area in Alabama, affording tremendous opportunities for outdoor recreation and environmental education.
