BAS July Monthly Meeting
Zoom Presentation
The Edwards Aquifer:
Our Unique Treasure

 

Wednesday, July 22
6:30 PM

Annalisa Peace, Executive Director of Greater Edwards Aquifer Alliance, will talk 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.
