G O V E R N M E N T C A N Y O N S T A T E N A T U R A L A R E A IT’S ALL ABOUT WATER Water has shaped the stories of this landscape from the beginning. Around 110 million years ago, during the Cretaceous Period, water brought dinosaurs here. Two kinds of ancient giants left their tracks along what was a beach, remnants of the Gulf of Mexico’s early reaches. Today, you can take a strenuous hike to a creek bed to see the tracks of theropods, carnivorous dinosaurs that walked on two legs, and the much-larger sauropods, who walked on four column-like legs. Karst features of the Recharge Zone do not filter the water, making the aquifer vulnerable to pollution and contamination. WHAT IS KARST? In San Antonio, most of our fresh water comes from only one source: the Edwards Aquifer. Rain recharges this aquifer when it falls on a karst landscape. “Karst” describes a landscape where rainwater dissolves a type of limestone, forming connected cavities. These passageways allow for the movement and subterranean storage of that same rainwater. Karst helps rainwater find its way underground. The Edwards Aquifer has three zones: the Contributing, Recharge, and Artesian zones. The Contributing Zone catches rain falling on the canyons and plateaus and moves it downhill to the Recharge Zone. There, karst features like cracks and caves swallow vast amounts of water, allowing for rapid recharge of the aquifer. Underground water flows to the Artesian Zone through a series of connected spaces, ranging from tiny pores to large caverns. Finally, the rainwater discharges as a natural spring, or is removed through man-made wells. Government Canyon State Natural Area protects thousands of acres of Recharge Zone, as well as portions of Contributing and Artesian zones. View toward the San Antonio skyline from Chula Vista Overlook. Much later, Native Americans passed through the canyon, temporarily camping near springs. By the 1700s, European immigrants began exploring the canyon’s floodplain area, looking for minerals and farmland. In the early 1850s, government surveyors established a military supply route through this area. The locals’ nickname for the project—the “government road” that was being built through the “government’s canyon”— stuck, and we call it Government Canyon to this day. The clear springs, fertile floodplains and lush grasslands attracted and supported farming and ranching in this area from 1860 until relatively recently. Families like the Hoffmanns, Kallisons and Zizelmanns depended on the supply of fresh water to support their livelihood. Growing awareness of San Antonio’s dependence on the aquifer’s fresh water caused concern about development over the Recharge Zone in the 1980s. Water started connecting people through common causes. Civic and environmental groups formed the
BIRDS OF GOVERNMENT CSTATE ANATURALN AREAYANDOVICINITYN A FIELD CHECKLIST 2022 Cover: Illustration of Lark Sparrow by Clemente Guzman III. INTRODUCTION G overnment Canyon State Natural Area preserves over 12,000 acres of land, most of which protects a portion of the Edwards Aquifer Recharge Zone. A large portion of Government Canyon lies within the limestone hills of the Edwards Plateau, where steep slopes wooded with mature Ashe juniper and live oak are host to the endemic and endangered Golden-cheeked Warbler. Large cedar elm, lacy oaks, live oaks, sycamore, and little walnut trees grow along the bottoms of canyons. This portion of the Natural Area, known as the Backcountry, attracts species such as the Canyon Wren and Woodhouse’s Scrub-Jay. In the warmer months, Black-and-white Warblers, Common Ravens and Summer Tanagers can be found. The southern portion of the Natural Area lies below the escarpment and is relatively level with a mix of Blackland Prairie and juniper/oak savanna habitat. Here, in what is known as the Frontcountry, you are more likely to spot some of your favorite “backyard” birds. The open habitat attracts species such as American Kestrels, Lark Sparrows, Meadowlarks, and Vermilion Flycatchers. Many of the birds in this area can be found in multi-species foraging flocks. When trails are closed due to significant amounts of rainfall, the roadways, Visitor Center, and Discovery Trail are still great places to find birds, including some of nature’s showiest species such as the Northern Cardinal, Scissor-tailed Flycatcher, Painted Bunting, and Yellow-breasted Chat. The Visitor Center’s location near the interchange of the Frontcountry and Backcountry means that species from both habitat types can be observed. This checklist was updated by Jessica Bergner utilizing eBird and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. It was originally compiled by Kelsey Woodward with help from the Birds of Bexar County Checklist by San Antonio Audubon Society, and from observations and input by Steve Hawkins, Georgina Schwartz, Helen Rejzek, Dodge and Lonna Engleman, Bob Doe, Keith Bartels, and Mark Lockwood. You can contribute to this checklist by reporting new and unusual sightings or changes in status. Please record both sighting and photograph, if possible, in eBird or other Citizen Science platforms. You may also report your sightings at the Natural Area headquarters or mail them to the Natural Resource Program, Government Canyon State Natural Area, 12861 Galm Road, San Antonio, TX 78254. Nomenclature and organization for this checklist follow version 8.0.7 of The American Birding Association Checklist. 1 Please help us protect the natural avian communities in our parks and natural areas by refraining from using playback recordings of bird songs. Frequent use of these recordings disrupts normal avian activity patterns, including essential territorial behavior, and may lead to nest failure. Thank you for your cooperation.

WELCOME from Rodney Franklin, State Parks Director This year is very special for Texas State Parks: We are celebrating our 100-year anniversary in 2023. More and more Texans are discovering the beauty of State Parks and exploring the outdoors in new and adventurous ways. Our teams across the state are incredibly excited to welcome outdoor enthusiasts, especially those who have yet to discover what our parks have to offer. The variety of Texas’ lands is unmatched; from the mountains of west Texas to the Gulf shores, the Texas State Park system celebrates and preserves the natural and cultural treasures that make Texas such a special place. The 640,000-plus acres that make up the state park system are nearly as diverse as the people of Texas. Since 1923, our mission has been to help connect our visitors with the outdoors. As we honor those who have come before us, I invite a new generation to be a part of the story of the lands that connect us all. There is more to enjoy in our parks than you know, so please join us in our celebrations and activities. Every day we look for new and better ways to ensure your state parks are welcoming to every Texan, regardless of their background or experience being outside. I hope you’ll visit soon and often, while bringing your friends and family along. YOU are a natural and we’re looking forward to celebrating the 100-year anniversary of state parks with you! WHAT’S NEW IN STATE PARKS Galveston Island State Park reopened the beachside of the park with a new headquarters, campsites, restrooms, and more. Bastrop State Park unveiled an extensive new group of trails, the “Tree Army Trails,” many of which are ADA-accessible. Improvements and major repairs are planned for Indian Lodge, Tyler, Inks Lake, Cedar Hill, South Llano River, Eisenhower and several other state parks All-terrain “GRIT” wheelchairs are now available at 10 parks with more adaptive equipment on the way to help people of all abilities experience Texas State Parks.
