Back by Popular Demand, on Sunday, September 30, Stewardship Pemberton (with the support of the Sitka Foundation) hosts a family-friendly field trip to the Upper Lillooet River Valley to celebrate BC Rivers Day.

The adventure begins with a guided tour in the Upper Lillooet River valley, touring the Mount Meager landslide, the largest ever recorded in Canada. Then, check out one of the largest fires ever recorded in the Coast mountains and talk about the role of fire in our landscape. Finally,  tour a significant salmon restoration project in Alena Creek, right at the base of the landslide.

If you missed this last year, or read Alyssa Noel’s fantastic feature in the Pique about Mt Meager, this is your chance to get a closer look at one of the most dynamic areas in our watershed.

Meet at the Community Barn at 10am. Convoy to the site, which takes approximately 1 hour. The road is gravel and flat. Bring a lunch. The trip will end back in town at approximately 2 pm.
