Cahaba Lily

Welcome to the Bham Now Nature Roundup “Cahaba Lily” edition – June 2nd edition.

Once again, it was a pretty slow week Nature news-wise in Alabama.

As we inch toward summer, don’t forget, tonight is Party on the Porch at Alabama Outdoors benefiting the Cahaba River Society.  AND by the way – the Cahaba lilies will only be around for another week or two.  Visit the Cahaba River National Wildlife Refuge to see the lilies in 2017!
