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.



Tree Tales

From seed to stump, trees go through a long and rooted journey to grow tall! This month, we are headed to Tynehead Regional Park, located in Surrey, to identify different trees found around the Fraser River, learn how to age a tree, and act out the lifecycle of a tree through an interactive story! 

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.
