Join us in making history for Howe Sound - donate today!
We are close to submitting our official application to have Howe Sound / Atl’Kitsem 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 $20,000 to carry us through the nomination process. We already have a commitment from a donor who will match up to $10,000 raised - so we are off to a good start!
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.
