Life and Future of the Edwards Aquifer

Guadalupe Co Chapter, Native Plant Society of Texas welcomes Gregg Eckhardt, renowned environmental scientist, who will address how our water use has evolved historically. He will describe the geology of the Edwards Aquifer, how humans have changed that geology by clearing native plants through the last several hundred years, and how we are now working to correct the damage by restoring the natural conditions. Gregg has studied the Edwards Aquifer since 1972. In 1994, he created the Edwards Aquifer website, which has been adopted as part of the curriculum for earth science classes and laboratories all over the world. In 2007 the Texas Water Utilities Association awarded the site their prestigious Exemplary Service in Public Education Award. In 2008, 2009 and 2010, the site was a finalist for the Texas Environmental Excellence Award, one of the State's highest honors.
