The Rivershed Society of British Columbia (RSBC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the health of BC’s longest river, the Fraser, and its riversheds.
The society formed in the wake of Fin Donnelly`s 1995 ‘Swim for Life’ – a 1,400 km three-week swim down the entire length of the Fraser River.
Since its inception in 1996, the RSBC has been actively delivering public education programs, community initiatives, and building stewardship capacity in the Fraser River Basin.
