Rivers day rounds out Quatse Salmon Stewardship Centre's summer season.

The Quatse Salmon Stewardship Centre rounded out its season with it’s second annual Salmon Centre Rivers Day Celebration.

The day kicked off with a fun-run around the Quatse Loop, and featured a demonstration of First Nations cooking, crafts, information booths, hotdogs, Tundra the wolf and much more.

Rivers day is a province-wide event, held the last Sunday in September each year celebrating rivers in B.C. The event aims to raise public awareness and understanding of the importance of our rivers and highlights some of the problems they face. The event has steadily grown since its inaugural event in 1980, and is now celebrated all over the globe.

Closer to home, the Quatse Salmon Centre uses the event as a climax to the Interpretive Centre’s summer season. The Interpretive Centre draws visitors from all over to learn about salmon on the North Island, and is a popular destination for local families and schools.

Here’s a few of our favourite moments from the celebration.
