Respite by the River
We are sad to announce that any Respite by the River events scheduled throughout April and May will be postponed.
The San Joaquin River Parkway & Conservation Trust is committed to protecting not only our Parkway supporters but our staff and volunteers as well. It is for these reasons along with guidance from the CDC and California Department of Public Health's guidelines to prevent the spread of disease that we have come to this decision.
New Respite by the River dates will be announced as soon as possible until then, we encourage everyone to be diligent in taking preventative measures to shorten the timeframe of COVID-19's impact.
