Look out for little wooden boats floating down the Peace River this Saturday, September 26th, as the 4th Annual Wooden Boat Race takes off.

The Peace Valley Environment Association is celebrating in light of BC Rivers’ Day, as The Peace has been voted BC’s Most Endangered River for a second year in a row.

The association says this is ‘a critical year’ to gather, and ‘protect the Peace River Valley – one of the only remaining, relatively ‘untouched’ areas in northeast BC.’

Participants are asked to gather at Bear Flat on the Hudson’s Hope Highway 29, approximately 30 km south of Fort St. John.

Boats can be signed up for a sponsorship for $20 through email ([email protected]gmail.com), by phone (Ruth Ann Darnall, at 250-785-2105) or by simply showing up at noon on Saturday and get one at the event.

Boats can also be taken home to be painted before the race.

First place winners get an outdoor family portrait session with PVEA photographer, Don Hoffmann; or a plaque mount of his famous “Keeper of the Peace” picture.

Runner ups in 2nd and 3rd places will win a box of assorted ‘Products from the Peace.’
