Event Details

River Basin Days is a series of outdoor public programs for families. Join us at different locations around the Fraser River Basin as we explore this incredible watershed! Our staff will guide you through one hour of activities, experiments, and art projects as we learn about the biodiversity of this great river.  

This month we are headed to təmtəmíxʷtən/Belcarra Regional Park to practice drawing from life! We’ll learn some simple techniques for observational sketching, play art games, and paint a nature scene!
