Biosphere Atlas – updated! Check out the Biosphere Atlas by clicking on the picture of Cape Breton in the right-hand column! The Atlas has recently been updated with more information about people and places in the Bras d’Or Biosphere. Make sure you let is know [at firstname.lastname@example.org] if you want to add anything.
Board of Directors Meeting: The latest meeting of the Bras d’Or Lake Biosphere Reserve Association was on Thursday, November 20th – 1:30-4:30 @ the St. Georges Channel Hall. The local association (South Mountain Arm of Gold) is a member of the Bras d’Or Lake Biosphere Association and proudly displays their support for the Bras d’Or Biosphere in their hall! Our next Board meeting will be in the new year – January 22nd – in St. Peters.
Updates for Municipalities: The Association is dropping by on Municipal Councils this Fall, providing an update of what we’re up to! It gives a great opportunity to remind municipal representatives that the designation is there for all to capitalize on. Signage is a topic we will be focusing on – to help build awareness of the UNESCO designation for visitors and local folks alike!
