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!

May 28, 10AM – 4PM: Marvelous Migratory Birds!

From gulls to sandpipers, eagles to plovers, many species of birds rely on the Fraser watershed as a source of food and shelter. Together they form a key part of the amazing biodiversity that exists along the mighty Fraser River.

Discover more about these birds and how they all survive in this month’s Super Saturday!

  • Learn some of the names of the Estuary’s bird species, the distances many of them have to fly each year, and how they are uniquely adapted for life along the Pacific Coast.
  • Discover how different birds prefer different types of food along the shoreline in our bird beak challenge.

COVID-19 safety protocols are in effect, and pre-registration is required.
