The Savanna Meadow skirts a gorgeous native grassland dotted with trees. It’s a great place to botanize and spot wildlife during all seasons.
What You’ll Find:
- A 1/4-mile trail wrapping around the meadow
- An explanation of karst landscapes and the Edwards Aquifer (look for signs that say “The Water Below”)
- Cecille’s Arch, a limestone gateway under giant live oaks
- An ephemeral creek that comes and goes with rainfall (even when it’s dry, you can often see evidence of previous water, such as recumbent grasses).
