ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Ron Coley celebrates our relationship with water through his life’s work. As an award-winning filmmaker and photographer, an innovator of SCUBA equipment, and an educational leader, he explores a world that few have been privileged to see first-hand. Coley oversaw the transition of the Aquarena Springs theme park to the Aquarena Center for Environmental Education at Texas State University. During his 20-year tenure, Coley created a shining example for water ecology and created education opportunities for the university, the region and Texas.

ABOUT THE BOOK

fountains

The Fountains of Saint Mark is a love story, a legacy to be cherished and held fast. Ron Coley’s images illustrate the fragility and strength of the Texas Hill Country artesian springs, the source of the San Marcos River. These springs created a 16-acre lake, inhabited by humans for more than 12,000 years, making it one of the oldest continually inhabited sites in North America.
