The Bruce Trail Conservancy’s unique Donor Recognition Program reflects a donor’s cumulative lifetime donations, and gifts through estates. On-Trail recognition is offered by way of leaf name plates on our donor recognition displays found at two locations: McNally Nature Reserve in Waterdown (Iroquoia section) and Lindenwood Nature Reserve Georgian Bluffs (Sydenham section).
