Currently, the River Authority is not conducting field trips through December 2020.The health, safety, and well-being of our constituents, students, and staff is of paramount importance. As such, the San Antonio River Authority (River Authority) has been closely monitoring updates and recommendations regarding COVID-19 from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, City of San Antonio, Bexar County, and the State of Texas. We will continue to monitor public health recommendations and make additional decisions and announcements as necessary. Please continue to follow us via our social media channels and visit our website for updates.

Field Trip Information
The highly skilled River Authority education team offers free and original programming for K-12 students Tuesdays through Thursdays in Bexar, Wilson, Karnes and Goliad Counties. Education programming is aligned to Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS).
It is our mission to engage, educate and empower students to make informed decisions about the conservation and protection of the San Antonio River watershed through thought-provoking, hands-on and inquiry-driven explorations. Nature-based and place-based programming are pillars in our field trip programming. We serve to augment what educators are teaching in the classroom with real-world examples that are locally relevant to the students. We encourage curiosity, observation, discussion, reflection, and action during field trips.
