River Warriors gather at park for clean up effort

Last Updated on January 4, 2024

(SAN ANTONIO)The River Warrior Program led by San Antonio River Authority (River Authority) and the San Antonio River Foundation joined forces with American Rivers, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to the protection and restoration of rivers across the country, for a river cleanup initiative along the San Antonio River. The River Warriors have a longstanding partnership with American Rivers, having collaborated on multiple occasions on many cleanup initiatives.

In partnership with JP Morgan Chase volunteers, this collaborative effort aims to contribute to the broader mission of American Rivers, which includes protecting 1 million miles of river, removing 30,000 harmful dams, ensuring clean water for every community and championing a powerful river movement. This annual event included 18 JP Morgan Chase volunteers teaming up with River Warrior volunteers to clean a designated stretch of the river at the confluence of the San Antonio River and San Pedro Creek. The cleanup removed 285 pounds of trash in and along the river.

“We are proud to continue our collaboration with American Rivers and JP Morgan Chasevolunteers for this important river cleanup initiative,” said Minna Paul, Education and Engagement Officer at the River Authority. “Our ongoing partnership exemplifies the shared commitment to preserving the health and vitality of the San Antonio River, and we look forward to making a positive impact on the local environment through this collective effort.”
