BC Rivers Day 2010

BC Rivers Day (World Rivers Day) is a province-wide event that began in 1980. On the last Sunday in September (in 2010, BC Rivers Day falls on September 26th, 2010), communities across British Columbia host events to connect citizens with their local rivers and river heritage. From paddling along historic canoe routes to discovering the flora and fauna which thrive along the rivers and to community festivals and events, BC Rivers Day is a celebration of the waterways that make up beautiful British Columbia espcially the Fraser River, the largest river and watershed in the Province!
