AO Party on the Porch Supports Cahaba River Society
Friday, September 13th is the last Summer hurrah for Alabama Outdoors’ popular “Party on the Porch” series. This edition will highlight the wonderful work of the Cahaba River Society. AO is looking to raise both awareness and money to assist with the continuing environmental protection efforts for one of the rarest, most beautiful and most fragile, river ecosystems in the country.
The party at Alabama Outdoors – Homewood, from 5:30 – 7:30 pm Friday, September 13th, will feature live music from the Green City Band, the Spoonfed Grill truck will be available for dinner, and your $10 donation gets you a magic cup that allows you to enjoy as much delicious and refreshing Cahaba Brewing Co. beer as you care. Anyone wanting to join us for a run through the beautiful Mayfair neighborhood of Homewood can enter the 5K Fun Run. All money raised goes to the Cahaba River Society.
The festivities include at least 20% off on almost everything from the AO Run Shop (ok, not the Hokas!), as well as sale items throughout the rest of the store.
Special prizes will be given away throughout the evening, including items from the Cahaba River Society, Alabama Outdoors, and much more.
Cahaba River Society
CRS serves not only the population of the Cahaba watershed but also all people living and working in the Birmingham metropolitan area. The Cahaba is the main drinking water source for the Birmingham Water Works Board, which serves about one-fifth of Alabama’s people. This “peopleshed” of residents and businesses who depend on and value the Cahaba River encompasses over a million people. In addition, CRS works with many statewide partners to strengthen water resource protection policies at the state level benefiting all the people of Alabama. While the bulk of our members live in the watershed or “peopleshed,” we also have the support of many members from throughout the state and across the nation and encourage the growing support of those who value the Cahaba River and believe in our work.
Their work also serves the diverse freshwater creatures who depend on the Cahaba. The Cahaba has more species of fish per mile than any other river in North America and is considered to be nationally and globally significant for freshwater biodiversity by conservation groups such as The Nature Conservancy and The World Wildlife Fund.
