Ore and Orcas: The Remediation of Howe Sound / Átl’Ka7tsem
An event every day that begins at 3:00 am, repeating until October 31, 2021
For the month of October, the Terra Lab at the Britanna Mine Museum will come to life with a dynamic, visual display, focusing on the impact of the mine on the Howe Sound ecosystem.
With Howe Sound/Átl’ka7tsem recently designated as a UNESCO biosphere region, the Museum is launching a new temporary exhibit in the Terralab STEAM learning space. Running from October 1st to 31st, “Ore and Orcas: The Remediation of Howe Sound” is a dynamic visual display showcasing the O120 Orca bone display and other marine specimens, to shine the light on the remediation of the Howe Sound marine ecosystem.
Partnering with the Strawberry Isle Marine Research Society (SIMRS), the Beaty Biodiversity Museum and the Porpoise Conservation Society, the visual exhibit and marine specimen displays will look at the mine’s history – including the impacts of pollution and subsequent remediation, recovery and protection with the EPCOR Water Treatment Plant – through the lens of its impact on the Howe Sound food chain.
