Our collective effort to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus by staying home has given everyone a very different view of spring this year. We asked our readers to share their photos of springtime flowers and other wonders of nature near their homes that have brought them joy during the pandemic. 

Enjoy the community photo contest submissions we received spotlighting spring in San Antonio, including the photo readers chose as their favorite and the Rivard Report’s staff selection.

Every day brings new developments and decisions by government and public health leaders to control the local coronavirus outbreak. We strive to be a trustworthy news source for all in the community–especially during this tumultuous time.

You rely on us for credible reporting, and we rely on readers like you to support our nonprofit newsroom. Can we count on you?

Our reporters are risking a lot to be on the streets chronicling this unprecedented crisis and its impact on our health care systems, local economy, and daily lives. We've been asking our readers to show support for this important public service by making a monthly donation or a one-time gift in whatever amount you can afford.

These donations are helping offset the loss of advertising revenue we normally rely on from local businesses. Can we count on you?
