Langley celebrates Rivers Day in Williams Park

This year, B.C. Rivers Day coincides with World Rivers Day on the last Saturday in September. Rivers Day is all about waterways and creating an understanding and appreciation of the importance of them.

In Langley, the Langley Environmental Partners Society (LEPS) is hosting Rivers Day at Williams Park at 6595 238th St. on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Visitors can expect a wide range of interactive activities at more than 35 unique booths. Salmon displays, bird house building, live owl demonstrations, stream side tree planting, and learning about all of the people, animals, and plants that depend upon rivers are just part of the celebration.

Not only can guests explore the features of Salmon River, which runs through the park, but they can also listen to some live music by Tony Prophet and the Genuine Jug Band.

Those with a creative drive can participate in the Upcycle Boat Race.

There are four separate competitions in the boat activity with age ranges of three to six; seven to 13; 14 and older; and a brand new category of corporate, municipal, or community group.
