What is the Fraser River Discovery Centre?
The Fraser River Discovery Centre is a modern museum featuring the communities living by the Fraser River. Their exhibits and programs highlight those that live and work along the Fraser River, which supports exhibits and programs celebrating the communities that live and work along the Fraser River. Over 60% of BC residents live within the Fraser Basin – this translates to roughly 3 million people. The river is part of the basin, home to the world’s most productive salmon river systems. As keystone species, salmon support diverse wildlife to make the unique ecosystems in BC thrive.
By salvaging cushions from furniture we receive at our facility, we’re able to donate them to the FRDC for use by their visitors. In 2018, we donated $330 worth of cushions. At Canadian Mattress Recycling, we take great pride in supporting communities in the Lower Mainland. We also enjoy reusing, repurpose, and salvage materials that come through our doors. Together, we’re reducing landfill waste one piece of mattress and furniture at a time.
Upcoming FRDC Events
The FRDC is open to the public. They showcase different exhibitions throughout the year include their newest engagement program BioDiversity. The BioDiversity speaker series invites residents on walking tours, with guided speakers who are biodiversity experts. If you haven’t heard of FRDC, though, you may have heard about River Fest. River Fest is their annual celebration of the Fraser River, which is held in September.
