In a normal year, we provide shuttles from the Lily Center in West Blocton to the river for viewing the lilies. This year we encourage people to visit on their own. 

HOW TO GET THERE

The best place to see the lilies in Alabama is at the Cahaba River National Wildlife Refuge. See the location on Google Maps below. The refuge is just a short drive from Birmingham and Tuscaloosa and makes a terrific day trip.

WHEN TO GO

The best time for viewing the lilies can vary from year to year. Typically mid-to-late May is ideal, but water level and other factors can affect the start of blooming. Watch our Facebook page for updates on how the lilies are progressing through the month of May.

The best time to see the lilies is whenever you can! Pick a date (or two) and plan your trip.

For those looking to get the most of out of your trip to Bibb county, you might consider visiting the river and then dropping by one of these nearby events:
