The Edwards Aquifer: Our Unique Treasure
July 22 @ 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Annalisa Peace, Executive Director of Greater Edwards Aquifer Alliance, will speak to us about how the Edwards Aquifer is the lifeblood for dozens of communities and millions of people in Central and South Central Texas. Over 60 species of plants and animals live here and nowhere else on the planet. Blind salamanders, catfish, crustaceans, and other “cave critters” have evolved in isolated habitat “islands” within the aquifer, in the dry caves above the water table, and at the Great Springs. The Edwards Aquifer and its Great Springs are highly vulnerable because of their unique geology and hydrology. Approved for Alamo Area Master Naturalist AT hours. Click here to join the Zoom meeting.
