FRASER RIVER: The Fraser is the largest river in British Columbia, and it drains about one-quarter of the province. The Fraser River crosses more diverse landscapes than any other Canadian river: it begins as a trickle at the foot of Mount Robson in the Rockies, crosses the dry, desert-like interior of the province, snakes through the treacherous, legendary Fraser Canyon, and finally empties into the Pacific at Vancouver. Its greatest significance, however, is its population of salmon.

STIKINE: The Stikine River traverses the spectacular wilderness of northwestern British Columbia. Its headwaters are in the vast Spatsizi Plateau, known for its concentrations of wildlife, including the regionally-unique Osborne caribou herd. The River then travels through the infamous “Grand Canyon of the Stikine” and empties into the Pacific Ocean at Wrangell, Alaska.

COLUMBIA: The Columbia is the most dammed River in North America, and a ghost of its former self. But the Columbia also has the longest stretch of undisturbed wetlands in North America. This vast maze of ever-changing ponds, streams, and channels is a nursery for millions of birds and diverse wildlife species.
