Test your River IQ!

Rivers, streams, and lakes that flow through British Columbia give life to our province. The water they carry is at the heart of everything we love about living here.

It’s also central to the issues we care about: from protecting species like salmon and orcas, to addressing climate change, supporting reconciliation with First Nations and preserving our ancient forests.

As you play, you’ll learn more about our remarkable waterways. Like which river is the longest in BC? (Hint: it’s not the Skeena).
