“God of all creation, this is your vineyard, this is your olive orchard which you have generously shared with us. We thank you for your generosity and for your love, because through it, humanity has been able to live, grow, and be nurtured generation after generation. You have given us a precious gift, the gift of this earth, which was created with great care and love. Therefore, it is only right for us to do the same.
“Give us the wisdom and the courage to care, love, and protect what you so lovingly gave us. Help us embrace our call as stewards of this earth and to make it our constant mission in life. Teach us to discover the worth of each thing, to be filled with awe and contemplation, to recognize that we are profoundly united with every creature as we journey toward your infinite light.”
The Very Rev. Victor Valdez
Rector, San Fernando Cathedral
Today, we are entering into the most dynamic period in the storied history of Brackenridge Park.
The Cultural Landscape Report has solidified the Park’s place in history.
The Bond project rehabilitation of the Pump House No. 1, one of San Antonio’s oldest existing industrial buildings, and the 18th-century Upper Labor Dam and Acequia are in motion.
Plans for the rejuvenation of Sunken Garden Theater are under way.
The Brackenridge Park Conservancy is the City of San Antonio’s official partner in the stewardship of this priceless public asset. But we can only do this with the generous support of the Brack Pack, the Founders Circle, grants, and gifts from individuals like you.
Your gifts will enable us to create free programming and events for all San Antonians, to rescue our culturally sensitive and historic treasures, and to restore the San Antonio River’s ecology to once again support water-oriented activities.
