"Yakona" is a visual experience through the crystal clear waters of the San Marcos River and its headwaters at Spring Lake. Follow the river on an impressionistic journey from its point of view as it flows from source to sea, through the changing seasons, through time and memory. Experience its relationship with the natural world and its interactions with humankind. Through "Yakona", the voice of the river calls on humanity's higher nature, inspiring its protection by revealing its beauty and life-giving spirit.
