Gifts from the Fraser – a Fraser River Discovery Centre Celebration!
December 14 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pmFree with admission
In collaboration with the City of New Westminster’s New West WinterFest,
the FRDC invites you to join us for a series of family-friendly activities throughout the day,
all with the goal of fostering discovery and appreciation for the Fraser River in wintertime, and
inviting us all to consider how we can engage with and learn about the river all year round.
The Fraser River Discovery Centre is excited to welcome Haida/ Sḵwxw̱ú7mesh Storyteller Kung Jaadee, who will be presenting her published story Raven’s Feast in the Canyon Theatre throughout the day (12:30pm, 1:30pm, and 2:30pm). her story shares a simple but important message: Each of us has a gift to share with the world, and we should also learn to love ourselves. Dressed in her traditional regalia, she uses her rattle, drum, and songs to enhance her stories while also teaching about the Haida language and culture.

other animals you get to make yourselves! Pens, pencils, paper and stencils all provided – just bring your imagination!
