Rivers Day

Sunday, September 26, 2021 | Wagg Creek Park

Join our annual Rivers Day festival in Wagg Creek Park! 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.

Along with many fun booths and activities hosted by local environmental organizations, we'll also be planting native trees and shrubs to help restore the streamside habitat in the park. Join us anytime from 10am-2pm on Sunday, September 26 to learn more about our local streams and fish habitat and help us plant some native trees and shrubs!

Come out and learn about bear safety, find out how rain gardens work, read a water themed book, and take a water quality sample.

  • 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!
