Blog Now Live

Last Updated on January 30, 2024

We’re so glad you’re here.

Our goal in creating this blog is to share stories related to our mission of being committed to safe, clean, enjoyable creeks and rivers. You will learn about our parks and trails, flood management, Utilities services, river health, and sustainability efforts as well as education and events and park programming opportunities. You will also hear from our staff as they share their own connections to area creeks and rivers and give you an insight into the role they play on a personal and professional level. 

We will also feature ways our constituents can join us in our efforts to “Be River Proud” by featuring photos and videos they submit via our social media channels. This is a great way to showcase how together we can all make a positive impact into the protection and preservation of our natural resources for future generations.

We hope these stories inspire and motivate you to forge a deep connection to the San Antonio River!
