Taking place on the last Saturday of each month, Super Saturdays is a series of public programs geared toward families. There are lots of activities that explore different features of the Fraser River, from its booming industry 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!


Please note that masks are required for all program participants. We are a small team of staff who interact with a high volume of daily visitors. Please help us keep everyone safe by respecting our mask policy.



Spring in the Lower Mainland means lots of rain plus melting snow from the mountains, repeating the cycle of flooding that has been part of the natural cycle of the Fraser River basin for thousands of years. Many First Nations around the lower Fraser even have oral histories from the end of the last ice age that tell of floods greater than anything recorded in the last two centuries!  

As flooding becomes more frequent and unpredictable with climate change, how can we redesign our communities to keep people and places safe? Super Saturday on February 25th is the perfect opportunity to test out your urban design skills with our stormwater bins!  


  • Test different surfaces to see what happens when it rains, and why? 
  • Model a flood to answer the question, “what is a flood, really?”  
  • Design a solution to your urban stormwater flood!  

PLEASE NOTE: Because participants will be directly using the stormwater bins, which will involve running water and sediment, this workshop is aimed at families with children over the age of 6 and require parental involvement.
