This weekend, March 4-6, the Greater Edwards Aquifer Alliance is hosting a conference called "Save the Heart of Texas -- A Regional Summit on the Edwards Aquifer and the Hill Country.

Friday afternoon and Sunday morning are workshops and networking of Hill Country activists. Friday evening is a reception at the Witte Museum, where they are opening their new "World of Water" exhibit.

The main "public" day is Saturday, with a series of panel discussions of conservation leaders, business, and government representatives. I am speaking on a panel at 11:00 a.m. concerning the planned extensions and expansions of highways and water lines in the Hill Country.

The conference is taking place at the Carver Cultural Center in San Antonio, just east of downtown. For anyone interested in attending more than one day, conference attendees are staying at a nearby Holiday Inn Express.
