Good afternoon BCMA,

The Fraser River Discovery Centre, located in downtown New Westminster, will be hosting its annual Fraser River Hall of Fame gala next month, on November 9th. The gala is a celebration of the individuals and organizations that have contributed to the health and sustainability of the Fraser River, and if possible we were hoping you could share this with your respective mailing lists and community calendars. The event will run with a hybrid in-person and on-line approach, and will be honouring with the work of MLA Coquitlam-Burke Mountain, Fin Donnelly. Full details below. Thank you!
Fraser River Hall of Fame
In 1991, The Fraser River Discovery Society established the Fraser River Hall of Fame to recognize and honour the many individuals, families, businesses, and organizations who have made noteworthy contributions to the Fraser River's culture, people, industry, and environment. Each year, the Hall of Fame nominee is celebrated at the Annual Fraser River Hall of Fame Gala, held at the Fraser River Discovery Centre.

This year’s inductee is MLA Coquitlam-Burke Mountain, Fin Donnelly! Fin is the founder of the Rivershed Society of British Columbia<https://rivershed.com/> and co-founder of the Fraser Watershed Initiative<https://naturevancouver.ca/fraser-watershed-initiative/>. From 1990 to 2000, he made 14 environmental marathon swims, covering more than 3,200 kilometres in BC’s rivers, lakes, and ocean; including twice swimming the 1,375 km length of the Fraser River in 1995 and 2000 to draw attention to the declining health of these water bodies and to encourage communities to engage in environmental advocacy.

Since 1995, he has spoken to more than 60,000 people in hundreds of BC schools and communities about sustainable living. In 1991, Fin was honoured by the Squamish Nation with the name Iyim Yewyews, which means strong swimmer in the animal world or Orca.
