 Fall Festival at Haig-Brown House

Sunday, September 24, 2017 - Rivers Day

Noon to 4:00pm

Haig-Brown House, 2250 Campbell River Road, Campbell River

Admission is Free

 

 Fall Festival at Haig-Brown House is a place to celebrate what we produce, prepare and distribute locally.

Conservation and paying homage to World Rivers Day is a big part of the festival and is how we honor the legacies of Roderick and Ann Haig-Brown and their work on education, conservation and preserving our natural environment.  The festival will feature fly tying and casting demos with opportunities for spectators to ask questions from local experts. 

This year we will once again have the Stewardship Awards being presented by the City of Campbell River, and at 1pm Parks Canada and the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada will have a special ceremony for the unveiling of a plaque commemorating the national historic significance of Roderick Haig-Brown.

Other elements of the festival this year include:
