Help “Living Springs” Raise Last $1,700!

As many of you know, Karen Kocher is producing Living Springs, a documentary about the history, science, culture and spiritual practices at Barton Springs, the crown natural jewel of Austin.  With the turquoise water and cool breezes embodying many important values for Austin, so the Living Springs project will be used to reach out to our community and keep the Springs in people’s minds.

Currently, there is only $1,700 left to raise for the funds to complete Living Springs.  Previous fundraising proceeds have been used to create six new videos to the interactive documentary and three screenings at the Springs, including an August screening for 242 people.  Current fundraising proceeds will go towards completing the project so that it can be installed at SPLASH!

In order to facilitate this, the project is having an on-line fundraiser. You can either donate on-line at or send a check to the address listed on the web site.

No amount is too small! All contributions are greaty appreciated!
