WaterWeeks is hosted by LEPS in partnership with the Township of Langley. This three week long annual celebration is a series of environmentally related activities that encourage residents of all ages to participate in the protection and enhancement of our environment.
BC Rivers Day
WaterWeeks is always kicked off with Langley’s BC Rivers Day Community Festival on the forth Sunday of September. This event is energy packed with activities such as bug viewing, bird house building, puppet theatre, tree planting, and more! Live performances by local bands and entertainers fill the park with festive music. In 2017, over 3,000 people came out to celebrate BC Rivers Day. The organizers work hard to ensure that BC Rivers Day is as entertaining and educational as possible, strongly encouraging participants to conduct engaging activities and offer fun, informative activities and booths that focus on local environmental issues.
