Sunday, September 15, 2019

Join the Georgia Strait Alliance and discover what makes our waterfront so wonderful! Water’s Edge Day is a fun, free, family-friendly community celebration, with activities in the museum, outside, and on the water!

Take a ride and listen to stories in a traditional First Nations canoe, test your balance on a paddleboard, or sing a song and go on a nature walk. Connect with organizations who are working throughout the region and discover more about the ocean that surrounds us.

All activities are free.

Water’s Edge Day is part of our Waterfront Initiative, a program that aims to establish a common vision for Vancouver’s waterfront; one that will restore, protect, and revitalize the shoreline. Water’s Edge Day is an opportunity for people to celebrate, connect with and explore the waterfront and experience the many different ways we interact with it.
