BC Rivers Day

September 30 is BC Rivers Day celebrated by river festivals, cleanups, school projects and river paddling in communities throughout the province. The purpose of this special day is to raise public appreciation of the irreplaceable importance of our rivers and the many benefits we derive from them, including increasingly scarce clean water and the precious spawning ground for salmon. BC Rivers Day also brings public awareness to the increasing threats to our spectacular waterways, the lifeblood of our land.

Created in 1980, the event is celebrated annually on the last Sunday in September. Its success in BC has recently led to the creation of National Rivers Day and World Rivers Day fostered by the UN Water for Life Decade (2005-2015).
