Does anyone have any tips on finding cg on a wing?

Are you asking about a flying wing or a wing on any aircraft? Not that there is a tremendous difference, but flying wings can be pretty cg sensitive.

Oops.
When some one says "wing", I think flying wing.
For most planes, 30-33% of the wing's width back from the leading edge.
I.E. 9" wing=3" back from the leading edge

Simple. Locate the thickest portion of the wing. Start there and adjust as needed, usually forward.

*Only applies to standards wing aircraft.
