The Guadalupe River originates from springs in western Kerr County. These
springs are formed in the Edwards Plateau of the Texas Hill Country when rain water migrates through ancient limestone formations to resurface in rocky canyons as springs. The Guadalupe River winds its way through diverse
habitats with many unique species of flora and fauna, including two endangered birds and many species of plants and animals that are indigenous
only to the Texas Hill Country.
