Help restore San Antonio's birthright, the Headwaters of the San Antonio River, which contains the historical source of the River, the famous Blue Hole spring. People have been drawn here for over 10,000 years. Ask us about the history. We make trails and replace invasive plants with native plants. We'll send you our Volunteers' Calendar and a map. Volunteers are just the best people! THANKS!

The 53-acre Headwaters Sanctuary was established by the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word in 2008. It includes the historic source of the San Antonio River (Blue Hole) and acres of undeveloped forest in need of ecological restoration. It is a place of sanctuary for nature and spirit, open to all who respect its sanctity and historic, natural and cultural values.

We clear brush, pick up trash, maintain trails and facilities, remove invasive species, replant natives, beautify this historic and culturally sensitive landscape. And we live for our volunteers!
