Join us in making history for Howe Sound - donate today!

We are in the process of completing our official application to have Howe Sound / Atl’ka7tsem designated by the United Nations as an UNESCO Biosphere and we need your help!

Becoming internationally recognized as Canada's 19th UNESCO Biosphere Reserve is  a long term commitment that will require continuous partnerships and financial support. In the short term, we need to raise $50,000 to carry us through the nomination process.  We are half way to our goal thanks to donors who have given so far.

Help create a legacy for future generations by donating today through our partners at the West Vancouver Foundation. All donations will receive a tax receipt.
