The Meadows Center


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. Two hundred springs bubble up to form one of the largest aquifer-driven spring systems in the world. Human history here stretches back 12,000 years – making this possibly the longest continually inhabited settlement in North America.

The lake is also home to eight threatened and endangered species, one of which – Texas Wild Rice – is found nowhere else on earth. Meanwhile, Spring Lake is a vibrant center and beloved resource for our community. We are honored to be the entrusted stewards of this place. It is at the heart of all we do. We are dedicated to understanding, protecting, and sharing it.
