About the Event
Join TCA and Meadows Center for Water & the Environment on Earth Day, Friday, April 22. We will remove Hydrilla, an invasive aquatic plant threatening the beautiful & serene San Marcos River. Our work will allow native Texas aquatic species more access to oxygen in the water and additional resources for their survival. The San Marcos River is one of the most critically endangered ecosystems in the world and is home to aquatic species found nowhere on Earth such as the Texas Wild Rice, Texas Blind Salamander, and the San Marcos Salamander! Let's get into the water to cool off, prepare to have fun, and work hard!
