Foundation Builders Membership 

The Headwaters at the Comal is a landmark of inestimable historical and ecological importance to the New Braunfels area. It represents both the source of the Comal River and the original center of growth for the community itself.


As such, we believe that its restoration, preservation and support should provide legacy opportunities for individuals, families and businesses in our area. We hereby invite you to participate as a founding member. There are many ways to get involved.

Phase 1 of the Headwaters at the Comal is now underway. This phase will include removal of a large portion of the asphalt on the site, restoration of the soils and creation of environmental zones, water quality improvement through the construction of bioswales and grasslands,  partial removal of the spring cap and restoration of the spring run, walking trails, and an outdoor classroom.
