When will the Sylvia Grinnell River break up? Do you have a guess about when the river’s falls will be ice-free and running? Nunavummiut are encouraged to take a guess!

Your guess must include your name and age, as well as the date and time, to the half hour, of the river’s break up. If someone has already guessed your exact date and time, territorial park staff will let you know.

If your guess is closest to the actual break up, you will receive camping equipment!

You can post your guess on the Government of Nunavut Facebook page or call Leesee Papatsie, from Nunavut Territorial Parks, at 867-975-7727. You can also message your photo of the Sylvia Grinnell river to our Facebook account!

The deadline to submit a guess is Tuesday, June 10 at 5 p.m. EDT.
