BY SUSAN SNOW
@ VOL 19 ON AUG 25, 2015

Susan Snow takes us on a tour of the historic San Antonio missions, which were first established to help make "good Spanish citizens" who could govern their own community while taking advantage of the life-giving river. Today, the missions are a UNESCO World Heritage site, a designation given to select places around the world exhibiting outstanding universal value. The path to earning this coveted designation required experts from diverse backgrounds to build an iron clad case of support. Since winning that nomination, Susan Snow and her team now work to improve conservation methods, to educate the community, and to preserve and promote these global treasures for the entire world.
