About SOMENOS MARSH WILDLIFE SOCIETY
Somenos Marsh is a fascinating, rich and diverse wetland complex lying at the geographic, demographic, and economic centre of the Cowichan Valley.
That it is still an area of exceptional bird, fish and other wildlife values is a testimony to the passion and determination of so many to preserve it - the people who over nineteen years have been active in the Somenos Marsh Wildlife Society.
The Somenos Marsh Conservation Area is located in North Cowichan, BC, on the north edge of Duncan. It is about a one-hour drive north from Victoria and one hour south of Nanaimo, via Highway 1, the Trans-Canada Highway.
