The Parkway Sponsors Program is an excellent opportunity for your business to be seen by supporters of the River Parkway Trust. Special Events combines Parties on the Parkway, Respite by the River, Park Operations, and River Tours into a more robust sponsor program.

If you are not familiar with these programs you can find links below to learn more about them. By sponsoring these programs you can help provide access to the outdoors to our surrounding communities.

The past year demonstrated how important access to quality green space is for the health and wellbeing of people in our communities. As a Parkway Sponsor, your business will help provide outdoor opportunities like guided nature walks, kayaking, fishing, and biking for people of all ages.  

The San Joaquin River is our most important natural resource and it flows right through our own backyard in the San Joaquin River Parkway. The River Parkway Trust is working to conserve and protect land, while introducing more people to the wonders of the river. I hope that you will join us to bolster the Parkway effort by becoming a 2022 Parkway Sponsor.

River Camp Firebaugh

In 2012, the River Parkway Trust identified the community of Firebaugh as a great site to launch a River Camp program to serve youth in the community of Firebaugh and surrounding Westside communities. This unique program offers the River Camp experience to youth in underserved and disadvantaged agricultural communities that would not otherwise have the opportunity to experience and learn about the San Joaquin River. 

This program continues to grow and in recent years, thanks to our generous corporate and individual sponsors, we have been able to expand the River Camp summer program in Firebaugh from two weeks to six weeks. This is a great opportunity for local businesses to gain visibility in Firebaugh and the surrounding Westside communities.

An investment in our Valley 

Community-minded companies recognize that an investment in parklands makes the Valley a better place to live - and that's good for business. Research shows that access to recreation in natural spaces is essential for the physical, environmental, social, and economic health of a community. The River Parkway Trust partners with businesses that share our commitment to conserving land and providing places where people can experience renewal in nature.
