Teacher Resources

We want students to complete the day with a firm grounding in the basic water science and policy issues of central Texas. We also want to inspire students to consider careers in the environmental sciences and environmental sustainability. In order to facilitate incorporating Barton Springs University into your teaching plan for the semester, we are providing pre and post-trip teaching resources. The pre-trip teaching resources include background information on Barton Springs and the Edwards Aquifer, maps of the Edwards Aquifer and Austin watersheds, and videos related to the flow of water through the aquifer. At the event, students will receive handbooks containing information that they learned during the day including suggestions for further writing, discussion, and exploration.

Drop Inside The Edwards Aquifer

Drop Inside the Edwards Aquifer" and explore an unfamiliar world hidden deep beneath the earth's surface as computer animation, video footage, and still photography reveal the mysteries of our fascinating aquifer system.

Follow the journey of water as rain falls and flows from high atop the Edwards Plateau, submerges below the earth's surface, and then resurfaces through springs in San Marcos. Along the way, you'll discover the hydrology and geology of a complex underground system and encounter some of the unique species that make this natural resource home. The Edwards Aquifer supplies water to nearly two million people in south central Texas and provides habitat to a number of threatened and endangered species.
