So many species — both plant and animal — can be found at springs in the Sky Island region. The plants, animals, and invertebrates present can help us understand how often the site has water. There are also springs that have species found nowhere else. And there are plants, in particular, that are non-native or even invasive that can out-compete native plants. See our guide to aquatic invertebrates, and use the photo galleries below to learn more about the various species you may find while out doing Spring Seeker surveys.
