The SRA sponsors and/or participates in a number of events throughout the year. These include fundraisers such as the annual Duck Race in May and Dinner Auction in September. Others are educational or informational such as monthly talks by guest speakers. And there are community spirit events such as river cleanups, fish stocking and "rock throwing".
Note: "Rock throwing" events involve adjustment of rocks and stones in the stream in order to establish a distinct channel, clear out pools or repair previously installed structures.
Note: Due to COVID 19 restrictions, many of our regular events have been cancelled. Board meetings and the AGM have been modified to an online format.
Current & Upcoming Events
World Wetlands Day: Feb 2, 2022
World Wetlands Day
Wetlands are land areas that are saturated or flooded with water either permanently or seasonally. Inland wetlands include marshes, ponds, lakes, fens, rivers, floodplains, and swamps.
2 February each year is World Wetlands Day to raise global awareness about the vital role of wetlands for people and our planet. This day also marks the date of the adoption of the Convention on Wetlands on 2 February 1971, in the Iranian city of Ramsar on the shores of the Caspian Sea.
SRA will be celebrating World Wetlands Day on Feb. 2, 2022. We will post updates here as plans come together.
