Comal SpringsSprings flow from Edward's Aquifer

The springs of the Nueces, Frio, and Sabinal rivers are the focus of a new Western Rivers Project of The Nature Conservancy. These springs and rivers support a number of unique and rare aquatic species, including a genetically pure population of the Guadalupe bass.

The conservation of these three rivers follow other Edwards Plateau projects on the Blanco and Pedernales rivers. Spring Lake Preserve opened in San Marcos last summer. This park was once known as Aquarena Springs, one of the first theme parks in Texas. This preserve protects the headwaters of the Sink Creek, the San Marcos River and the Edward's Aquifer.
