The Cahaba River passes through Trussville, Leeds, Irondale, Birmingham, Mountain Brook, Helena, West Blocton, and Centerville and continues through Selma and empties into the Alabama River at the former town of Cahaba. The Cahaba River joins the Alabama River at the ghost town and former Alabama capital of Cahaba in Dallas County. The waters of the Cahaba are home to more than 131 species of freshwater fishes (18 of which have been found in no other river system), 40 species of mussels, and 35 species of snails. The river has more fish species than can be found in all bodies of water in California. The endemic freshwater snail Elimia cahawbensis is named after the river. One species long thought to be extinct, Leptoxis compacta, the Oblong rocksnail, was rediscovered in the Cahaba in 2011. The Cahaba is also home to 13 snail species not found anywhere else in the world. Among the countless plant species that thrive in and around the Cahaba is Hymenocallis coronaria, known in Alabama as the Cahaba Lily. The Cahaba Lily is found only in South Carolina, Georgia, and Alabama. The Cahaba Lily opens in the evening instead of the day due to pollination by sphinx moths, which are active at night. Each flower blooms and lasts only one day before wilting.
