For over 150 years, the Cumberland Forest has given a great deal to our community. Now the CCFS is helping this forest retire from active service. Many thanks to Cumberland Museum & Archives for the photos.

Did you know?

The type of rainshadow forest ecosystems we find here, are naturally rare on our planet.  They are dominated by a unique combination of drought tolerant species such as Douglas-fir, Arbutus and Garry oak and only occupy a narrow band surrounding the Salish Sea and the Gulf Islands within it.  There are more different kinds of plants and animals here than anywhere else in BC and more over-wintering bird species than anywhere else in Canada.
