Zoom Video Conference

The Cahaba River is recognized globally for its incredible biodiversity, but much of that biodiversity was put in jeopardy when the Cahaba was cutoff from the Gulf of Mexico decades ago by Claiborne and Miller’s Ferry dams on the Alabama River. Dozens of fish species, including those that act as host fish enabling the life cycle of freshwater mussels, could no longer travel upstream to their natural spawning habitats. Join us Tuesday, March 14 at noon as we hear from Jason Throneberry with The Nature Conservancy in Alabama about exciting progress, led by the Corps of Engineers, to construct fish passage channels around these dams restoring long lost fish runs on the Alabama River and reconnecting the Cahaba to the Gulf of Mexico.
