Karst: It's All About Water

Discuss all things karst with Brent Doty, Research Manager for the Edwards Aquifer Authority

Gain a new understanding of how water enters and moves throughout our aquifer before finally emerging at important spring systems (or out of our faucets). Brent will discuss conservation efforts to protect the aquifer and the endangered species endemic to our karst system.

Brent is a hydrogeologist with more than 15 years of experience protecting and researching the Edwards Aquifer. Government Canyon is his number one place in Texas to unwind and connect with nature.

This activity is open to all ages, but will be enjoyed most by ages 10 and up. Minors must be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian. No pets please. You may want to bring a blanket or portable chair for your comfort; seating is on limestone ledges.

Registration is NOT required. Though the activity is free, entrance fees to the Natural Area do apply. We often fill to capacity. To ensure entrance and save time at the Fee Booth, please pre-purchase and print out a day pass. Park in Lot C and meet at the Amphitheater.

Dress for sitting outdoors. Comfortable shoes, sunscreen, bug spray and a hat are recommended. Bring at least 1 liter of water per person.

This program is weather-dependent and subject to cancellation. Check trail conditions by calling GCSNA's main office at 210-688-9055, or go to the GCSNA webpage, Instagram, or Facebook.
