Edwards Aquifier

Edwards Aquifer National Park
San Antonio, TX

An important freshwater aquifer, Betsy Damon was a design consultant and led a brainstorm workshop on how public education will enhance the community interface of the park.

In a month as an eco-artist teaching at Trinity University, Damon focused her students and the community on the Edwards Aquifer and on the San Antonio River. Although the aquifer was rapidly being encroached upon by development, few people understood the implications of losing their water source. The citizens action group that formed succeeded in protecting the thousands of acres and the water source. In 2003, after they created the largest aquifer preservation park in the US, they invited Damon to return to lead a four-day charrette to design the human interaction inside the park. One of Betsy’s students initiated the San Antonio River clean up that continues as an annual even.
