LMN Meeting: Headwaters of the Comal Project
Nancy Pappas will share information on the Headwaters of the Comal Project at the Texas Master Naturalist Lindheimer Chapter’s monthly meeting.
Chair of Comal Trail Alliance, Pappas is managing director of New Braunfels Utilities’ Headwaters at the Comal project.
According to New Braunfels Utilities site:
“The Headwaters at the Comal establishes a relationship between the community and the environment and demonstrates the regeneration and protection of water and ecological resources.”
“Situated on the banks of the Comal Springs and Blieders Creek, the Headwaters at the Comal will highlight the hydrological, environmental and cultural history of the region and will be a living demonstration of sustainable practices for the local community and nation.
“The landscape design of this property will include the restoration of the Comal Springs headwaters and the transformation of more than 16 acres of asphalt into immersive native landscape. Plant groupings will evoke regional typologies while newly introduced berms and bioswales filter and cleanse stormwater before returning it to the creek. Public amenities will include a central courtyard, event lawn, display gardens, walking trails, outdoor classrooms, natural spring overlooks, wastewater treatment wetlands, composting facilities and more.
