This year ARMS is celebrating the 28th Annual Ridge Meadows Rivers Day on September 26th, 2021. The Annual Ridge Meadows Event will be held at ALLCO Park this year, with a smaller format than past events. Rivers Day will be on from 10am to 2pm, where attendees will be able to wander the park and interact with exhibitors.
World Rivers Day celebrates all the world’s waterways. It aims to draw attention to the values all rivers can hold and increase the importance of protecting the valuable waterways around the globe. By bringing attention to the threats our waterways face, we can educate and begin to help restore and keep our rivers healthy for future generations. This will be the 16th year of World River’s Day, which was based on the original event of BC Rivers Day, founded in 1980.
