    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

    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.

    Native Tree Giveaway

    Fall is here and it’s the perfect time to adopt a tree! Supplied by San Antonio’s Parks and Recreation Department, these 1 gallon FREE native trees need your love and care to grow and join the vibrant canopy which makes San Antonio a beautiful place to live and play.

    The benefits of adopting a tree include increased property values, reduced energy consumption, reduced storm water runoff, which in turn helps control flooding, protection of the Edwards Aquifer, cleaner water, and a more resilient, lovely city.

    One tree per household and a member of the household must be present. There will be 500 trees available on a first come, first served basis. You do not need to bring an ID or utility bill.

    Species available on a first come, first served basis:
    Anacacho orchid
    bur oak
    cedar elm
    chikapin oak
    desert willow
    Eve’s necklace
    live oak
    Mexican plum

    Montezuma cypress
    pecan
    Texas mountain laurel
    Texas red oak
