Orca Celebration cancelled due to logistics with weather
My Sea to Sky regrets to announce that the Orca Celebration planned for Sunday 16th September is cancelled due to logistical challenges with the weather.
The Squamish Street Market will proceed, rain or shine, from 10am till 6pm as planned on Sunday 16th September, with live music, beer garden, food vendors, and street market.
My Sea to Sky hopes to partner with the Squamish Street Market again in 2019, and will ensure that any future events are better weather-proofed.

About My Sea to Sky
My Sea To Sky is a people-powered environmental organization that was founded in 2014 to defend, protect, and restore Howe Sound. We actively advocate against unsustainable industrial projects that threaten the environmental recovery of Howe Sound, and are working to develop a shared vision and plan to protect Howe Sound for future generations, and reduce human caused threats to Howe Sound. We do this by organizing educational events; coordinating research; building partnerships and respectful relationships; lifting up First Nations voices and culture; and facilitating public engagement with our municipal, provincial, and federal governments. We aim to inspire our community to become activists, and make it as simple as possible for people to take action at critical moments.
We inspire and empower British Columbians to safeguard the spectacular natural legacy of Howe Sound.
We envision a future in which Howe Sound’s (Átl’ka7tsem) thriving ecosystems support regenerative communities.
Our strategic priorities (2018 to 2023)
- Defend: Stop destructive projects that threaten the environmental integrity of Howe Sound.
- Protect: Develop a shared vision and plan to protect Howe Sound for future generations.
- Restore: Reduce human-caused threats to Howe Sound and support ecosystem restoration efforts.
