Through Earth Week (April 16 — April 22), volunteers from Regions Bank have joined the Cahaba River Society to clean up trash from the Cahaba River in Birmingham.

We tagged along with the volunteers to learn more and see why their work is so important.

There are several ways you can support the Cahaba River Society, whether it’s becoming a memberdonatingvolunteering or joining the Cahaba River Society for one of their events. However, even keeping an eye on the waterway for any potential problems can make a difference. 

“If you see something in the Cahaba River that shouldn’t be there—such as trash or a large amount of dead fish—give the Cahaba River Society a call at (205) 322-5326 or send an email to We’ll gather supplies and organize a team to fix it, but we need your help to spot those issues before they get out of hand.”
