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.
