Check out 'Nueces River at Calallen' and 'Nueces River Preservation Association' on Facebook. They're owned by local residents whose goal is to bring attention to others that the river is worth caring for and keeping clean. Not only is the river our main water source, but it's full of natural beauty, wildlife, and history!
