Rivers & Trails Festival
Celebrate Port Coquitlam’s rivers and trails!
In celebrating the Annual Rivers & Trails Festival and World Rivers Day, community groups are invited to participate in a shoreline clean-up along the Coquitlam River on Sunday, September 26 from 11 am & 12:30 pm. There are 60 min time slots. City staff will provide all required supplies, a safety orientation, and arrange for collected litter to be collected. Special care will be taken to ensure everyone stays socially-distanced while participating in the river clean up.
Registration is required and limited based on supplies and in order to comply with current Public Health Orders.
The first BC River’s Day was founded by Mark Angelo in 1980 to celebrate our rivers, highlighting the many values and increasing public awareness and encouraging stewardship.
In the year 2000 Port Coquitlam began celebrating our 3 rivers, Pitt River, Fraser River, Coquitlam River and our trails which run alongside the creeks, the forests and wildlife.
