The Long Point World Biosphere Reserve has partnered with Norfolk County’s Tourism and Economic Development to advance sustainable tourism in our area. This partnership was made possible thanks to a grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
- We’re working with Ontario’s three other biosphere reserves (Georgian Bay, Niagara Escarpment and Frontenac Arch) to share resources and strategies for developing sustainable communities.
- We’ve created an online database of industry-specific environmental certification programs that is accessible to local businesses who want to improve their environmental footprint.
- We want to learn more about your sustainable tourism practices so that we can help promote them and help the public make responsible travel choices.
What can you do?
Become accredited – join your industry’s environmental certification program and make changes to your business that will save you money and protect the environment.
Promote your sustainable achievements – make your commitment to sustainability part of your organization’s story. Tell your customers about what you are doing and encourage them to get involved.
