Welcome to the Somenos Marsh

Somenos Marsh is a rich and diverse wetland complex lying at the geographic, demographic, and economic centre of the Cowichan Valley. It is an area of exceptional bird, fish and other wildlife and ecosystems values within the Somenos Marsh Conservation Area, formerly known as the Somenos Marsh Wildlife Refuge. The continued existence and functioning of its wetland ecosystems are a testimony to the passion and determination of so many individuals who, for more than two decades, have worked together to preserve it through the activities of the Somenos Marsh Wildlife Society.
