River Basin Days is a monthly series of outdoor public programs geared towards families. Join us at different locations around the Fraser River Basin as we explore this incredible watershed! Our staff will guide you through 1-hour of activities, experiments, and art projects as we learn about the biodiversity of this great river.

Masks are recommended for all  programs. Click HERE to read our Visitor Code of Conduct.



When we meet a new person, we introduce our names, make conversation, and maybe participate in a shared interest. What do we do when we meet a park for the first time? How do we get to know it? In this workshop, you’ll learn some great ways to get to know a park, like learning native plants, making nature art, and playing games, which can be done at any park you visit in the future!

This event will take place rain or shine, so please come prepared for the weather.

Registration cost includes admission to the Fraser River Discovery Centre. Pay when you register for this workshop, and the next time you visit the Centre in-person, you will be admitted for free.
