Interactive Station: Rain Water and Salmon in the City
Learn, Interact and talk about City Rain water as a vital source for the Natural World.
City rainwater is typically flushed away quickly, out of sight and into our pipes. City of Vancouver and Salmon-Safe BC invite you to learn about useful, strategic green infrastructures that encourage nature’s return to the city. This interactive pop up station illustrates how we can manage rain in a way that provides salmon habitat, improves water quality, and celebrates water within our urban centres.
Date: Saturday, March 16, 2019
Time: 11am - 3pm
Free with admission to the museum.
