March 18-25: WaterWealth Celebrates Canada Water Week

Join us during Canada Water Week for a series of events & activities to celebrate the waters that sustain our home!

Communities from coast-to-coast-to-coast are celebrating Canada Water Week from March 18-25, and the WaterWealth Project is bringing the festivities to the Fraser Valley and surrounding region.

Are you interested in learning more about water and joining a locally-driven campaign to protect our rivers, lakes and groundwater? Do you want to experiment with new high-tech mobile engagement technologies to create a live crowd-sourced story map of our home waters?

Does a free community supper, music and children’s activities in the heart of Hope sound like a recipe for a lovely Friday evening? Or are you simply in the mood for a thought-provoking film and popcorn admist people who care about protecting our home waters?

Check out our jam-packed schedule of events and activities to join us in bringing Canada Water Week to the Fraser Valley region.
