Rivers of Alabama


Alabama is blessed with some of the most unique river basins in the world! This page is intended to bring these rivers to life by providing in-depth examinations of each river and their respective watersheds.  Descriptions of what the rivers look like, what types of aquatic animals live in them, how healthy they are, recreation opportunities in the area, protected areas, and much more can be found here.

This page is far from complete as there is a world of knowledge out there. Much of this knowledge is unpublished and only available through local individuals. If you know of a publication, photograph, unique story, or unique place that would make this website more complete and more interesting, please let us know!
