All of us who spend time around Georgian Bay know how special it is, but chances are most of us don’t know the whole story. The Georgian Bay Land Trust set out to create a book that would tell that story, bringing together the environmental, historical, and cultural sides of Georgian Bay to fully explore what makes this area so remarkable.

Georgian Bay: Discovering A Unique North American Ecosystem contains chapters by archaeologists, ecologists, historians, geologists, and more, taking the reader on a journey from ancient geological history to present day communities. From the early peopling of the area during the last ice age, to the birds that call Georgian Bay home, to the landscape’s role in Canadian art and culture, there is something for everyone to learn about this special place. 

This beautifully photographed, hardcover book is on sale for $60. $10 from the sale of each book will support the Honey Harbour Association, with all remaining proceeds supporting the Georgian Bay Land Trust’s work conserving wilderness on Georgian Bay. Orders may be placed at for pickup at the 2017 HHA AGM on July 15th.
