Experience the Fraser River
“The World’s Greatest Salmon River”

August 6th to 30th, 2009

Follow this year’s trip down the Fraser on Granville Online.

Journey by canoe, raft and on foot 1,400 km down the Fraser River from Mount Robson to the Pacific Ocean. Participants take in breathtaking scenery along the way, from ancient rainforests to grasslands, sage brush and floodplain.

The program covers key sustainability concepts such as food security, voluntary simplicity, stewardship and green economics. Students learn how to lower their ecological footprint and design a project to take back to their community or stewardship group.

Geared to those interested in fisheries, environmental education, outdoor adventure tourism or project planning, the SLLP includes team building exercises, conflict resolution, communication skills and critical thinking. Camping along the banks of the Fraser, students study the fauna and flora, watersheds, ecosystems, the water cycle, resource management and what a truly sustainable fishery would look like. They meet with the RSBC’s extensive network of First Nation and Non-Native Fraser River community stewards as they pass through their communities.
