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.
The Fraser River Discovery Centre’s health and safety protocols are based on recommendations from the BC Health Authority.

This month we’re headed underwater to take a look at the largest fish that inhabit the Fraser River – white sturgeon! Known as the ‘Ghosts of the Fraser’, these elusive fish can live for decades and grow over six metres long. They face many dangers before they reach adulthood, from hungry river otters to water pollution and climate change.
- Learn how the white sturgeon are adapted to survive in the murky waters of the Fraser River.
- From tiny egg to giant fish – discover the sturgeon lifecycle!
- Face the dangers of the Fraser as a sturgeon in our survival board game.
- Saturday, June 24th, 10:00am – 4:00pm
