First Credit Union & Insurance is very excited to help support the great work being done by the Cumberland Community Forest Society. The Cumberland Community Forest Society was formed in 2000 with the mission to purchase and protect the Cumberland Forest for its ecological, historical, economic and recreational values. The Cumberland Forest has given a great deal to our community. Cumberland was built on logging and mining and the Cumberland Forest was a base for both activities. Today an extensive trail network winds its way through the area that is enjoyed by hikers, mountain bikers, runners, naturalists, children and families, school groups, artists and many others. This forest is an integral part of both the Trent and Puntledge Watersheds, feeds Comox Lake, and forms a critical link in an extensive habitat corridor that connects mountains and lakes to the Salish Sea.
