Discover the Cahaba: Alabama's Living River 

Be inspired to connect your students with nature while visiting the Cahaba River. The Cahaba River is the longest undammed river in Alabama and has been named one of the top five rivers in the world for biodiversity by the World Wildlife Fund & the Sierra Club.  

Join educators from Alabama Water watch and Cahaba Environmental Center for a three-day teacher workshop hosted by Legacy.  You will have the opportunity to explore the Cahaba and the surrounding watershed while learning experiential activities that you can take back to your classroom.  

Participants will observe the amazing flora and fauna that call the Cahaba River home, including the Cahaba Lily which only grows in Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina. This water-intensive workshop will remind us all of the importance of Alabama’s water resources.  This workshop includes many hands-on water-related activities, such as snorkeling the Cahaba, flipping rocks, canoeing and learning in the same hands-on way we teach our students.
