Friends and family of WRN member Daphne Nicolls (who passed away in August) decided to memorialize Daphne and honour her husband Gordon by creating the Daphne and Gordon Nicholls Nature Reserve. Part of the Bruce Trail Conservancy, this new nature reserve is located on the north side of County Road 40 in Euphrasia, Grey Highlands in the Beaver Valley section of the trail. It will contain part of the optimum trail route, and is a critical part of a continuous stretch of permanently protected land. Details can be found on page 10 of the Winter 2016/2017 edition of the Bruce Trail Magazine.
