Sign up for Barton Springs University Day

Thursday, October 22, 2020 by Tai Moses

Barton Springs University Day 2020, like soooo many other things, will be a little different this year, but it will still be the diverse, educational program enquiring minds have come to know and love. The free half-day of virtual learning about Central Texas water issues will be livestreamed from 9 a.m.-noon on Tuesday, Oct. 27. The day starts with keynote speaker Dr. Robert Mace, the executive director and chief water policy officer at the Meadow Center for Water and the Environment, followed by a tour of Parthenia, Eliza and Zenobia springs at 9:45 a.m. At 10:15 a.m. stay for a presentation on toxic blue-green algae and at 10:45 a.m. you can learn all about the fascinating life cycle of the American eel. Youth climate change activists are in the next slot at 11 a.m. and at 11:20 a.m. you can hear about what it takes to become a lifeguard at Barton Springs. At 11:30 a.m. there’s a talk about managing wastewater in the Hill Country, appropriately titled “Beyond Yuck!” See the full program here.
