Rivers Day

2022 Rivers Day
Rivers Day will be held on Sunday, September 25. Check back on this page for details on the City's celebration.

Every year on the fourth Sunday of September, the City celebrates Rivers Day by bringing together community members and organizations to raise awareness about our local streams and habitat.


2021 Event Information

Our annual Rivers Day festival was held on September 26 in Wagg Creek Park. Along with many fun booths and activities hosted by local environmental organizations, we planted native trees and shrubs to help restore the streamside habitat in the park. Participants also learned more about our local streams and fish habitat, bear safety, rain gardens, read water themed books, and took water quality samples.

These groups joined us for Rivers Day:

  • North Shore Streamkeepers
  • North Shore Black Bear Association
  • Wildcoast Ecological Society
  • Coho Society
  • Library Spokes 'n' Words Book Bike

About Rivers Day

BC Rivers Day began in 1980 and has grown exponentially since then. In 2005, Rivers Day was recognized by the United Nations and became World Rivers Day, a celebration of the world's waterways. It's now celebrated by millions of people from communities around the world.

Come out, meet your neighbours, participate in a wide variety of activities and celebrate our urban creeks!
