Our platform is designed to serve as a catalyst for community engagement for the protection and preservation of the San Marcos River. Our aim is to help broaden awareness and to increase participation with various river protection efforts organized by city and community groups.
The Mermaid Round-Up
The culmination of the Mermaid SPLASH Festival is Mermaid's Society's annual river cleanup event that takes place on the Sunday following SPLASH. The Mermaid Round-Up is a “call to action” and serves as a first-step for community members to be introduced or “re-introduced” to riverbank and park cleanup efforts. This family-friendly event is designed to inspire youth to model our super-hero, the San Marcos Mermaid, to be river guardians for the San Marcos River.
Participants will be joined by both enthusiasts and experts in the field and learn about the many opportunities to be involved with river protection throughout the year.
