This project would conclude with a network of trails from San Antonio to Austin, connecting the major springs. This would lead to public engagement in conservation issues, as well as an opportunity for conservation demonstration. This project would enhance public access to the beautiful water features of this region - contributing to the overall awareness of the need to conserve them.
