The Heart of Turtle Island: The Niagara Escarpment

“She is not ours. This glorious treasure that is the Niagara Escarpment, is not the possession of any one person, group, race, or even nation. And yet, whether it exists by cosmic chance or divine decree it is the responsibility of we humans to steward it, and quite plainly, to protect it.”

-James Howlett

In support of stewardship and environmental awareness, HPA has purchased copies of Mark Zelinski’s new photography book Heart of Turtle Island: The Niagara Escarpment, a multi-layered perspective of the living Escarpment, and its geological, cultural and environmental significance. As Part of his “Books That Heal” initiative, Mark donated the proceeds to Café 541 Eatery and Exchange, a non-profit Hamilton restaurant that turns dollars into buttons- anyone can use 5 buttons from the jar each day as $5 towards a good meal.

James Howlett, member of the HPA Board of Directors, authored the final chapter of Heart of Turtle Island, titled: ‘To the Next Keepers’.
