Classroom Presentations

Currently, classroom presentations are only being offered as an alternative to teachers who are on the field trip waitlist. We will update this page with any changes.

After reading through and learning more about our presentations, for when they do become available, please fill out the "Keep in Touch" webform at the bottom of this page to receive email notices and opportunities through the San Antonio River Authority.

RIVER CAMP! 2.0 Virtual Classroom Presentations

The San Antonio River Authority’s Education Department is proud to offer a variety of hands-on and impactful virtual presentation topics from which teachers can select (limit one grade level per school per year). We are happy to schedule virtual classroom presentations on a Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday for K-12 students in Bexar, Wilson, Karnes, and Goliad counties. Teachers are expected to be a part of the experience with supervision and direction. TEKS alignments for all presentations are available upon request. 

Select presentations have the option of being more interactive with free individual student activity kits, but we require teacher commitment to help assemble and distribute these kits to their students. More information about the presentations and optional kits can be found in the request form below.

River Authority presentations are popular. Here is how it works:
  • In order to provide equal opportunity for all public school districts throughout Bexar, Wilson, Karnes, and Goliad Counties one grade level per school and up to 3 schools per district will be considered per year. Additional schools within a district wishing to participate will be placed on a waiting list and will be contacted if slots become available.
  • Homeschool groups and private schools are eligible for one visit per year.
  • All requests are evaluated on a first-come-first-serve basis and are accepted at the discretion of the River Authority.
  • Please fill out a Virtual Classroom Presentation Request Form below. River Authority staff will contact you within a weeks’ time regarding the request.
Reservation Policy
  • Virtual classroom presentations must be requested at least three (3) weeks in advance. For the best selection of dates and staff availability, contact us via the request form below as early as possible.
  • Requests are pending until processed with confirmed dates by River Authority staff.
  • Confirmations and other important presentation details including pre- and post-presentation activities will be sent to the email address provided in the initial request.
Cancellation Policy
  • If your group is running late, the River Authority cannot guarantee that all activities will occur as originally planned.
  • In the event that unforeseeable circumstances prevent the presentation to proceed as planned, the River Authority will contact the presentation organizer as soon as possible.
  • A rescheduled presentation is not guaranteed.

We look forward to helping your students and school community learn more about their San Antonio River! To help us successfully schedule these presentations, please submit only one request for your entire grade level.
