Wow, what a year!

I'm sure that none of us imagined on January 1, 2020, what the year ahead would hold.

The COVID-19 pandemic caused us to cancel most of the 2020 Parties for the Parkway, halt school River Field Trips, cancel all rental events at the River Center, and dramatically change the River Camp program this summer. But through it all, supporters like you have remembered the River Parkway Trust in your charitable giving.

Many partygoers chose to donate the cost of their tickets in lieu of a refund, and many generous friends like you made special contributions this year.

Throughout this strange year, I've been gratified to see the increased recognition of the importance of our parks, trails, and open spaces, as we moved outdoors to exercise and spend time with our loved ones.

The generosity of the River Parkway Trust's members, donors, River Camp families, volunteers, and advocates is what gives me hope for the year ahead. You make it possible for us to adapt to and overcome the continued challenges of the pandemic.

Thank you for your continued support of the San Joaquin River Parkway, and have a Happy (and safe) Thanksgiving!
