Rivers Day

Sunday, September 25, 2022 | Mosquito Creek Park

Join our annual Rivers Day festival in Mosquito 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.

We'll have information booths from local community groups - stop by and make something beautiful by weaving with invasive plants! New this year is a Bike Repair Café, which will feature hands-on bike maintenance demonstrations led by experienced mechanics from the PEDAL Society, plus drop-in one-on-one sessions with a bike mechanic. 

Of course it's Rivers Day so we'll also be planting native trees and shrubs to help restore the streamside habitat in the park. Join us anytime in Mosquito Creek Park (near the corner of Fell and Larson) from 10am-2pm on Sunday, September 25 to learn more about our local streams and fish habitat!

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!

Volunteering is a great way to learn about your parks and the native plants. New volunteers are welcome and no experience is necessary. Register on the City Park Stewards page.
