The first time I saw Howe Sound, my partner and I were fresh out of university and Squamish was our first stop on a three-month climbing trip around North America. As we drove from Vancouver along the Sea to Sky Highway in an old Dodge Caravan, we saw... absolutely nothing. It was one of those rainy days when Howe Sound was completely shrouded in fog and hidden from view. But as we drove into Squamish the fog lifted and the rain stopped; and there was a beam of light shining down and illuminating the Stawamus Chief. That moment is etched in my mind as a moment I'll never forget.
Howe Sound is one of the most spectacular places I have ever seen. Every morning, I wake up, and I see the Stawamus Chief, the temperate rainforests, the rivers, and the mountains, and I feel so incredibly lucky that I am able to live here. This is my heart’s home.
The past four years have been particularly special for me, as people from around Howe Sound have come together with a shared vision: to protect Howe Sound for future generations. I am so proud to be part of this dedicated and passionate community of volunteers that have kept us informed, helped us to organize, and made it simple to take action at critical moments.
When you make a monthly donation to My Sea to Sky, no matter how big or how small, you are helping to support our campaigns to stop Woodfibre LNG, stop the Burnco gravel mine, and actively support our vision to protect Howe Sound for future generations.
Our goal is to get 100 monthly donors signed up. Will you be one of them?
Wishing you all a wonderful festive season with friends and family, in this beautiful place we all call home.
