Cahaba River National Wildlife Refuge

Cahaba River National Wildlife Refuge

West Blocton

Cahaba River National Wildlife Refuge is a critical habitat for the endangered Cahaba shiner, goldline darter, round rocksnail, and cylindrical lioplax. There are also 64 other rare plant and animal species within its borders. It is home to Hymenocallis coronaria, a threatened plant species known in Alabama as the Cahaba lily. Its abundant presence here is one of the reasons for the creation of the refuge. Visitors can enjoy fishing, canoeing and wildlife observation. See the lilies bloom from May through June. Cahaba River NWR is located in Bibb County, Alabama, approximately six miles east of West Blocton on County Road 24. From I-20/59 take Exit 97. River access is provided by a gravel road on the south (right) side of Bibb County Road 24 approximately 250 yards past the refuge entrance sign.
