Super Saturdays is a monthly public program geared towards families. There are lots of activities that explore different features of the Fraser River, from its booming economy to its diverse ecosystem!

Previous programs include a deep dive into the Fraser’s powerful tugboats, the secret lives of the river’s ‘ghostly’ White sturgeon, and the opportunity to make your very own fishy friends using simple craft supplies! Check below to see upcoming events. We can’t wait to connect with you!



The forests of the Fraser are made up of many individual sprawling trees and plants … or are they? Fungi are the secret communication and transportation network of the forest, connecting almost all land plants! Join us on November 26th to learn more about common, local mushrooms and their many roles around the Fraser River as the cool, wet weather brings them out to shine. 

  • Learn how fungi connect the forest through the wood wide web!  
  • Identify some local mushrooms and learn the parts of a mushroom fruiting body. 
  • Make a mushroom print to take home. 

COVID-19 Safety protocols are in place. Pre-register here.
