Clean Sweep

Volunteer Toolkit

Be a Pick-Up Artist

Every year, the San Antonio River Authority, City of San Antonio, Bexar County, other governmental agencies, and volunteers pull tons of trash out of area creeks and rivers. A piece of trash you see on the sidewalk in your neighborhood or on the ground at an area park will likely end up in a local waterway. You can help make a difference. Don’t let litter trash your river!

Join the Litter Challenge

The first, and easiest, way you can help is to download the free Litterati app and start documenting all the trash you pick up in your own neighborhood, in the parking lot when shopping, and anywhere you see litter and can safely pick it up.

For those who want to participate in organized clean-ups in the parks operated by the San Antonio River Authority – like the Mission Reach of the San Antonio River Walk, please sign up to become a River Warrior. If you’re interested in the River Authority parks in the Wilson, Karnes, or Goliad counties, please join the following Facebook groups to learn of volunteer opportunities in those southern basin parks.
