Cowichan District, Indian Reserve


A re-survey of the Cowichan and Quamichan Districts on Vancouver Island. The districts are overlayed by a numbered grid and are criss-crossed by rivers and trails.

There are notes describing the land cover including what the soils are like, swamps, prairie, what trees are present, gardens, timber, potato patches, and which areas occasionally flood.
