Fraser River Teachings

The FRDC focuses on three themes when sharing teachings of the river because the Fraser will only be sustainable if we balance its environmental, socio-cultural, and economic uses.

This approach flows through everything we do–every day–with all of our visitors and partners. Programs that support this work include:

  • eight RiverSchool programs taken by over 25,000 students since they began in 2009
  • monthly River Basin Days in local parks
  • Faces of the Fraser events with speakers who grew up or worked on the river, and
  • our Fraser River Dialogue series featuring First Nations, industry and government panellists talking about key issues impacting the river.
  • Plan for and put on our annual Fraser River Hall of Fame Gala, during which a person, company or organization dedicated to the Fraser is inducted into the Hall of Fame;
  • Fund our annual RiverFest, which attracts up to 10,000 people each year; and
  • Identify and support 4 Faces of the Fraser programs each year, where speakers tell their personal stories about living and working on the Fraser River.

If Fraser River education and programming for all ages is important to you, please help us continue our work–and do even more in the future.

Helping people learn about the Fraser River is a key way to ensure its sustainability in the future.
