Audubon’s Oriole on the Mission Reach of the San Antonio River Walk

As part of our commitment to safe, clean, enjoyable creeks and rivers, the San Antonio River Authority (River Authority) offers free park programming throughout our four-county service district in an effort to promote our parks and trails and forge meaningful connections to area creeks and rivers.

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the River Authority’s parks and trails have remained open, providing important recreational opportunities along the San Antonio River. Our Recreation and Park Programming staff has produced a video series to provide answers to the most popular recreation questions. The next video on the series features our recommendations for birdwatching along the San Antonio River Walk available in English and Spanish!

También ofrecemos el video en español como parte de nuestro esfuerzo para alcanzar a nuestra comunidad hispanohablante.

***In accordance to CDC guidelines during the COVID-19 pandemic, mask wearing and social distancing are strongly encouraged while on the trails.***

Birdwatching on the San Antonio River Walk

Join us on the Mission Reach of the San Antonio River Walk as our Recreation Superintendent shares tips on how to enjoy birdwatching on the River Walk! Come along as we showcase ideal spots along the river and see beautiful images of bird species that were spotted along the way. We also share information about the Mission Reach Avian Study, a multi-year study that was conducted to document the species that use the restored habitat thanks to the project’s ecosystem restoration efforts.
