About Rivershed Society of British Columbia:

The Rivershed Society of British Columbia (RSBC) formed in the wake of Fin Donnelly`s 1995 "Swim for Life" down BC's longest river, the Fraser River. Since its inception in 1996, the RSBC has earned the respect of many Fraser River Basin organizations, including stewardship groups, schools, First Nations, and local and senior government agencies, by delivering public education programs, community initiatives, and building stewardship capacity in the Fraser River Basin.

Consisting of 34 intricately-linked and interdependant riversheds, the Fraser River Basin drains 21 million hectares (more than a quarter) of British Columbia. The Basin is seen by many as the heart and soul of the province and is a key economic engine with a current population of over 1.2 million people and a strong First Nations history going back thousands of years. The Fraser Basin is experiencing a rapidly growing population and rapidly declining ecosystem health - the largest salmon river in the world is not healthy.

RSBC is dedicated to improving the health of both the Fraser River Basin and all those who live within the Basin.
