Editor’s Note: The San Joaquin River is just minutes away from Riverpark, one of the most prominent shopping areas in Fresno, and yet many Fresnans have never experienced the river. There is a renewed interest and discussion in public access to the river, which is opposed by homeowners in the exclusive residential area that borders the river. About 15 young Fresnans visited the river recently to learn about it and help in clean up efforts. The Know is a youth-led community news media outlet of New America Media.
