San Antonio Bay Partnership (SABP) announces the release of its Strategic Plan 2018, which culminates nearly a yearlong effort to consider SABP’s accomplishments to date and establish priorities going forward. Thanks to all who have contributed to this effort and its success.
The planning process confirmed that we do not lack for opportunities. SABP’s goals address many needs and issues — habitat conservation, freshwater inflows, public access and ecotourism, and environmental education — and the Plan provides specific actions to be taken to achieve our goals. Please take a few minutes to read the SABP Strategic Plan 2018. Your comments are appreciated.

While this Strategic Plan 2018 is complete, the efforts to fund and implement it are currently underway—and your continued help is be needed. Become a Sponsor of the San Antonio Bay – Guadalupe Estuary today!
Come paddle with us as we explore San Antonio & Espiritu Santo Bays and their fresh water inflows, the Guadalupe River.
The planned paddles are a mix of experienced to beginner levels and provide the opportunity to paddle both coastal and inland routes–including in a moon light! We include an educational element to each paddle so we can grow our knowledge and love of this unique and wondrous place. Lunch or refreshments are generally provided during each event. We ask a $20 donation or you may also become a Paddling Sponsor and join us for as many paddles as you like. Funds raised cover our costs and proceeds support the good works and programs by SABP.

The program provides K-12 students living in the watershed of Guadalupe / San Antonio Rivers a hands-on environmental education program that consists of two components: (1) A boat trip into San Antonio Bay aboard the Texas Floating Classroom vessel and (2) On-shore educational activities to supplement the lessons taught during the boat trip. Students experience the wonders of local waters first hand, but more importantly, they will be encouraged to consider the important role that they play in the conservation of our coastal resources.
Our goal each year is to raise $30,000 which allows participation of 600 students in the activities of Estuary October. Your generous support will change the lives of this future generation and arm them with the knowledge about the importance of the San Antonio Bay / Guadalupe River watershed.
A very generous contribution from Formosa Environmental Trust has anchored this year’s program. Thank you, Formosa!
