The event was a big success.  We will have the photos up soon.  We recorded the Barton Springs University presentations and will be posting them online in the weeks ahead.

Join Karen Kocher next Tuesday, August 20th for a screening of portions of
her new Barton Springs educational website.

Screening starts at 8:30pm Barton Springs-north entrance and then free full moon swim after.  Get a glimpse HERE. 

Meanwhile, the drought continues.  Please take care to minimize your water use.

Today the New York Times ran a great piece on the move to lose and shrink lawns in order to save water. Check it out HERE.

This is a great time to let the drought take unsustainable parts of your landscape in advance of planting native and drought-tolerant plants in the fall.
The SOS office will only be open sporadically over the next two weeks, as we take a break and enjoy the last of summer vacation.  We will be back and in touch soon.
 Help us save Barton Springs from pollution and over-pumping.
Please consider a summer donation or monthly pledge to SOS today.
