About Stewards of Gorge Harbour Society

Welcome to Stewards of Gorge Harbour!

We are a community based organization interested in the health, welfare and development of Gorge Harbour on Cortes Island. Our goal is to establish long-term dialog amongst those interested in the fate of Gorge Harbour, including the wider community of those who live, work and play in its waters and along its shores.

To achieve this goal, we serve as an information resource on, and about, Gorge Harbour, and provide this information in order to assist with sound decision making. We accomplish this by gathering, assembling, and distributing information online and via written reports and presentations. It is within all of our best interest to understand and answer questions pertaining to the history, science and ecology behind this beautiful harbour.

To help estabilish dialog, we organize social, educational and cultural events that will help strenghten our community. Dialog is vital for the preservation and development of Gorge Harbour, and for its future as a home and livelihood to all. .

We are in the process of assembling our digital library and online resources, including scientific studies to help us all better understand the science and potential of Gorge Harbour. Please be patient as we develop this website. We invite all who are interested in the health, welfare and development of Gorge Harbour to contact us and become a member of the Stewards of the Gorge and we invite the contribution of information. By working together, we hope to take care of Gorge Harbour for future generations.
