The Cahaba Environmental Center at Living River is an environmental education organization managed by McDowell Environmental Center.

Cahaba Environmental Center

Environmental Educators

The site is a breathtaking tree-covered point nestled in a deep bend in the Cahaba River, preserving a mix of hardwoods and older trees that were once typical of Alabama's river bottoms but elsewhere have been logged and replaced with faster-growing pines. The Cahaba River provides habitat for an impressive diversity of aquatic species, is one of Birmingham's primary sources for drinking water, and has become a hot spot for recreational activities. Because of this unique location, CEC fronts over 4 miles of river, giving you ample space to canoe and explore.

The Cahaba Environmental Center is focused on inspiring students of all ages to become stewards of the natural world through hands-on, experiential environmental science programming that connects them to the Cahaba River. Paired with one trail group of 8-12 students during their 1-5 day experience, Environmental Educators will have the opportunity to share the wonders of the natural world, create a sense of community, foster a fun and safe learning environment and facilitate hands-on activities about topics such as forest and stream ecology, watershed science, Native American culture, and geologic processes. Positions are available during the spring (mid-February through May) and fall (August to late November). Applicants must hold a Bachelor’s degree, have experience with students of various ages, and demonstrate creativity, enthusiasm, maturity, initiative, a sense of humor, flexibility and team spirit. If you have a passion for learning and teaching about the natural world and cultural history, email your cover letter, resume and three references to Shannon Moore.
