Attend the 3rd Annual Full Moon Documentary Screening Series to watch all new content from the Living Springs project, an interactive documentary about Barton Springs. Footage will include “Cleaning Day,” a humorous behind-the-scenes look at the unique stewardship practices that contribute to making the Springs an amazing place for humans and endangered species alike. “Cleaning Day” features the Barton Springs lifeguards and staff and community volunteers from the Friends of Barton Springs Pool. Most people know Barton Springs as the main pool, but Barton Springs is actually a system of Springs, each with their own special story. In “Barton’s Four Springs”, interpretive planner Clark Hancock shows some hidden gems, all within walking distance of the diving board. Original animation and lively music tie this story together.
Enjoy the amazing underwater world of Barton Springs accompanied by original music created especially for Living Springs by composer Graham Reynolds. Bring a chair or blanket to sit on. After the screening, take a free swim in the Springs from 9-10pm (no lifeguards) and join in the “Keep Austin Weird” tradition of howling at the full moon. No rain date.
This screening coincides with the opportunity for the community to contribute to continue to add to the series. To donate: https://rally.org/livingsprings.
