cumberland wetlands working group
The Cumberlands Wetlands Working Group (CWWG) consists of individuals with an interest in the wetlands of Cumberland. The group was formed in 2017 when we noticed that some of the wetlands were drying over the summer … for the first time in memory. We got curious and approached the village about installing some gauges to measure water level. Once a week a CWWG volunteer walks through the wetlands and records the water level reading on each of the five staff gauged currently in place. Long term, this data will help us understand the hydrology of the wetlands and better manage this precious resource.
We respectfully acknowledge that we do our work within the traditional territory of the K’ómoks Nation
