BC Rivers Day
BC Rivers Day website
Thousands of British Columbians celebrate BC Rivers Day on the last Sunday in September each year, making it Canada's largest river appreciation event.
BC Rivers Day generates public awareness about British Columbia's waterways. Recreational clubs, conservation organizations, community groups, schools, and local governments host BC Rivers Day events across the province.
ORC has seen the event grow exponentially over the past 30 years. This growth can be attributed to British Columbians' growing concern for the state of local waterways.
BC Rivers Day provides a positive opportunity for diverse groups to show why BC waterways are important. Planned events celebrate the following river values:
cultural • ecological • historical • aesthetic • recreational
Past Rivers Day events include:
Riverside nature walks
Paddle trips Art exhibitions
