Celebrate World Rivers Day with SC Streamkeepers

Sunday, September 26th at 11:00 am – 2:00 pm

We are so blessed on the Sunshine Coast to have so many beautiful creeks! Let’s get together to celebrate them on BC Rivers Day – now celebrated in over 100 countries!
Join us as we clean up the estuary, riparian zone and beach of Roberts Creek! Also, come out to learn about the importance of riparian zones and how to keep them healthy! We can continue to protect and rehabilitate wild salmon and the important ecosystems they rely on the Sunshine Coast.
We will follow the latest health guidelines of BC Health Authority.
Please bring gloves, and if you have one a picker upper to make the job easier!
We need volunteers to help, or any questions, please send an email to scstreamkeepers@gmail.com. We really appreciate any help you can provide!! Thank you all!
We gratefully acknowledge this event takes place on the unceded territories of the shíshálh (Sechelt) and Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) peoples.
