The San Antonio River Authority’s Education Department is proud to offer a variety of hands-on and impactful classroom presentation topics from which teachers can select (limit one school visit per year). We are happy to schedule classroom visits Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday.  Teachers are expected to be a part of the experience with classroom supervision and direction. TEKS alignments for all presentations are available upon request. We look forward to helping your students and school community learn more about their San Antonio River!
