San Marcos’ natural areas serve several important functions, including water quality protection, recreation, and as we experienced at the end of October, floodplain buffers. Many of San Marcos’ creeks are intermittent or dry most of the time, and it is easy to forget their importance. But for the SMGA greenway vision, these creeks are the backbone of this interconnected system of parks and natural areas.
