The highly skilled River Authority education team offers free field trips for 3rd grade through 12th grade students in Bexar, Wilson, Karnes, and Goliad Counties. Education programming is aligned with 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 STEM programming are pillars of our field trips. 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.
