This talk celebrates Howe Sound's rich mosaic of diverse ecosystems. Encouraging environmental trends, including the return of herring, dolphin, and whales, show that Howe Sound is recovering from past industrial damage. Dr. Bob Turner, retired geologist, author, and long-time resident of Bowen Island, will paint a picture of the Sound's extraordinary recovery, with a view to the long term trends. Ruth Simons, Executive Director of the Future of Howe Sound Society and lifelong resident of Howe Sound, will review the current challenges and future vision for the Sound, and tell us what we can do if we wish to get involved.
