May 22, 10 am - Cahaba Lilies - West Blockton
This giant white blooming flower in the middle of the river is one of Alabama's most unique natural spectacle. Acres of white bloom in the shallows of the river. You can walk out and touch them and take photos in the water. This endangered species only blooms here, and very few other places. It is a must see! We will meet at the West Blockton Coke Ovens Park, which is nearby and has better meeting space. We will caravan to the Wildlife Refuge. You may want to bring water shoes or old tennis shoes that can get wet. Register at events@FreshAirFamily. Free for members, $10 per family/$5 per person for non-members.
