    Your Generosity Has Changed Your World

    Since 2003, our Foundation has raised over $38 million dollars from individuals and organizations in our community. That money was reinvested to enhance your San Antonio River experience. Our project partners —San Antonio River Authority, Bexar CountyCity of San Antonio, and US Army Corps of Engineers— have invested over $384 million in river improvements for our community. Together, our investments have added over $1.5 billion in economic impact through adjacent private investment and development.

    Thank You for Your Continued Support

    Donald Lipsky

    I-35 Overpass near Camden Street

    It’s hard not to smile at Philadelphia artist Donald Lipski’s school of giant fish swimming through the sky beneath the interstate overpass. The cluster of 25 seven-foot-long creatures of hand-painted fiberglass resin are anatomically correct models of long-eared sunfish, native to the river. Impressive by day and stunningly lit from within at night, the glowing fish are a beacon from blocks away, adding color and levity to a once neglected downtown area. A 26th fish is on display in The DoSeum, San Antonio's Museum for Kids, offering an up-close view of the installation’s vibrant detailing.


    COMMISSIONED PUBLIC ART
    The San Antonio River Foundation commissioned and funded public artworks for the benefit of our community and in support of our partners in the $384M San Antonio River Improvements Project. All works along the Mission Reach have been donated to the City of San Antonio's public art collection in perpetuity.


    our special thanks to XXXX and XXXX XXXXXXX for supporting this art installation.

    River Trio Ecological Restoration Workday

     

    There’s no better way to celebrate Spring than dedicating your time and service to ecologically restoring our San Antonio River.

    The River Trio Service Partnership is made of the Headwaters at Incarnate Word, San Antonio River Authority and San Antonio River Foundation.

    Volunteer duties may include removing invasive plants, hauling cuttings into piles by the trails and running them through a wood chipper, maintaining existing trails and making new ones, planting native species and picking up trash. The workday is also a time to enjoy nature and learn about ecological restoration and the natural and cultural heritage of the San Antonio River.

    Gloves and tools will be provided. Please wear closed-toed shoes, outdoor clothing and be sure to bring a reusable water bottle and sunscreen.

    Our awesome partners at REI San Antonio will be there with snacks, swag and an opportunity to win a super cool prize!
