Go tell it on the river

This news got lost amid the holiday eggnog, but environmental advocates last month unveiled a new website intended to raise the profile of the largely invisible San Joaquin River.

From the river’s headwaters in the High Sierra, to its mouth in the west Delta, the site maps out parks, historic sites and access points where the public can enjoy the San Joaquin.

The San Joaquin River Partnership put together the “access guide,” which is also compatible with mobile devices.

“It’s a guide for people who are recreating, so that they can go to one place (on the web) to find a spot to do what they like to do,” said partnership spokesman Finn Telles.  “One of the partnership’s goals is to make the community around the river as well as the whole region aware of the river. It really is a special place.”

The site is not absolutely comprehensive — it doesn’t include the levees encircling Stockton’s Brookside neighborhood, for example, a wonderful waterfront commodity — but it does mention Stockton staples like Louis Park and Buckley Cove Park.

The project was funded through a grant from the National Park Service’s Rivers, Trails and Conservation Assistance Program, among other organizations.
