Dates of existence


Inspired by the proposal to build a third runway at the Vancouver Airport, the Fraser River Coalition was established in 1976. The following organizations jointly contributed to the formation of the Coalition: BC Public Interest Research Group; BC Wildlife Federation; Burns Bog Conservation Society; Community Forum on Airport Development; Federation of BC Naturalists; Save Our Parkland Association; Sierra Club; SPEC; Steelhead Society of BC; United Fishermen & Allied Workers' Union; Vancouver Natural History Society and Wreck Beach Preservation Society. These organizations did not have a formal relationship with the Fraser River Coalition other than an assumption that there would be agreement on the approaches taken by the Coalition.

The Fraser River Coalition works towards the preservation, conservation and enhancement of the Fraser River as an ecological unit. Research into proposed land use in and around the area resulted in newsletters to communicatewith and educate the public, as well as establishing communication with local government. The Fraser River Coalition is volunteer run and meets monthly.
