Slideshow: TPR Volunteers Clean-Up Future TPaRbor Site

On Saturday, March 29, Texas Public Radio partnered with the community and volunteers to clean-up an area near the Mission Reach.

The Mission Reach Ecosystem Restoration and Recreation Project is restoring an eight-mile stretch of the San Antonio River into a quality natural riparian ecosystem. The San Antonio River Authority has given TPR the opportunity to adopt a 3.4-acre stretch of natural area adjacent to the project, which we are calling the TPaRbor.

Our vision for the TPaRbor includes trees, native plants and shrubs planted to symbolically honor our supporters. Volunteers came together to begin the clean-up and replanting of the area, in anticipation of creating an expanded and improved habitat conditions and connections to the San Antonio River ecosystem. The fruit of our labor will be on full display this fall. 

Special thanks to the San Antonio River Authority for their generosity and guidance.
