Introducing the Átl’ka7tsem/Howe Sound Biosphere Region

In 2021, UNESCO (United Nations Education, Scientific, and Cultural Organization) designated Átl’ka7tsem/Howe Sound, an area renowned for its rich Indigenous culture, biodiversity and distinct geography, as Canada’s 19th UNESCO Biosphere Region. This international honour recognizes the ecological and cultural importance of this living, working landscape. It is the result of many years of hard work by a dedicated team of people from many communities around Howe Sound.

Guest Speaker: Ruth Symons

Ruth is the Lead of the Howe Sound Biosphere Region Initiative Society ( She will speak about what a UNESCO Biosphere Region is, what this designation means, why it is important, the steps required to acquire this designation, and what happens next.

Everyone welcome!

Beaches on Bowen are rare and valued by most islanders as places to access and enjoy the natural, wild beauty of Howe Sound / Átl’ka7tsem. It is here that we are most likely to encounter the water’s teeming wildlife, enjoy the salty aroma of the clean ocean waters, and savour the refreshing coolness of a swim on a hot summer’s day.

The Bowen Nature Club has created an activity guide designed to help you and your friends and family discover the many intriguing life forms that make Bowen’s beaches their home.
