    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.

    Hispanic Heritage Month Geocache Treasure Hunt

    Hola Exploradores!

    In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, Latino Outdoors will be unveiling a geocache series in the heart of San Antonio that takes participants to various locations that represent Hispanic culture. This series will introduce people to Hispanic art and history while engaging in a popular outdoor activity. Through the Geocaching app, you can learn about the cultural and historical significance of each site.

    Geocaching is an “outdoor treasure hunt” in which participants follow a set of GPS coordinates to look for treasure. The treasure or “geocaches” are hidden at varying degrees of difficulty, with some geocaches being cleverly camouflaged in plain sight! To learn more visit Geocaching 101

    There are 7 geocache sites in total with prizes hidden in various spots. We will be refilling with new prizes all through October, did someone say Fiesta medals?? On your mark, get set, VAMONOS!

    To view the full list of geocache locations download the geocache app or click HERE
