The largest Cahaba Cleanup ever...IS GOING VIRTUAL!

Don’t litter–it ends up in your River!

Cahaba River Society Hoped to hold the largest ever one-day Cahaba River Cleanup on up to seven sections covering up to 50 miles of the Cahaba River from Leeds to Helena this spring. The current Covid-19 Pandemic has prevented us from being able to safely hold it while protecting our volunteers. But, we are determined to make a difference no matter what. So, we invite you in going VIRTUAL with us!

Support, volunteer, pitch-in safely and help us protect The Cahaba - Alabama's longest remaining free-flowing river and the biological heart of America's Amazon. Help us restore the natural beauty and reduce pollution of this iconic river (and a primary source of Birminhgam's drinking water).

What: Make a difference in your stretch of the River and share it with us! 

Why: To restore natural beauty and reduce pollution of this iconic river (and a primary source of Birmingham’s drinking water) while educating the public about reducing litter and encouraging recycling.

Who: Cahaba River Society, volunteers, community and corporate sponsors and partners.

How: With your help! This event would not be possible without YOU!

In an effort to support the main goal of our Big Cahaba Cleanup, we invite you to visit the Cahaba River on your own time (and while practicing social-distancing), enjoy this incredible natural beauty and while you're at us clean it up! 

This evolving event will not only clean more trash, it will also draw media coverage for widespread public education encouraging people and businesses to do their part to clean up and recycle their litter to keep it from getting into the river where it impacts drinking water & wildlife.

Get some fresh air and cleanup your area of the Cahaba. Then, share your photos with us with the #BigCahabaCleanup2020
