Declared a "Critical Habitat" in 1980, Spring Lake is home to eight federally listed species. Spring Lake gives life to the San Marcos River, to San Marcos and downstream communities, and to The Meadows Center for Water and the Environment at Texas State University.

The San Marcos Springs, which bubble up from the Edwards Aquifer to fill Spring Lake, are the second largest spring systems in Texas. They have never stopped flowing in recorded history and have more environmental stability and flow of any spring system in the southwestern United States. As stewards, The Meadows Center is dedicated to protecting, preserving and sharing its abundant natural, historical, and cultural history with all who visit Spring Lake.

The Spring Lake Pocket Field Guide provides information for more than 110 species found at Spring Lake, including amphibians, reptiles, mammals, birds, trees, shrubs and vines, wildflowers and aquatic plants! Weatherproof for durability, this handy guide is a great source of portable information and ideal for field use by novices and experts alike.

We hope readers will use this book as a way of introduction to some of the many species of the Spring Lake habitat that defines the unique beauty of this place.
