Join us in protecting the headwaters of the San Antonio River -- the 53-acre Headwaters Sanctuary and Blue Hole spring, known to indigenous peoples as Yanaguana (meaning up-flowing waters of the Spirit) and known to early residents as “the source” of the San Antonio River, “the key to the situation, the Ojo de Agua, the birthright of the city” (Corner, 1890).
With your help, we can preserve, restore and honor this land that holds such an important place in our city’s natural and cultural heritage.
