Nicol’s Gully is a 17-acre property with the Pottawatomi River crossing through it. It was acquired in 2001.
The property is important to the nearby residents and area fisherman for enjoying nature by plant observations, bird-watching and access to the river. The wildlife potential is excellent as there are various wildlife habitat characteristics such as large fallen woody debris, standing dead trees; some with wildlife cavities that were currently being used by the local wildlife such as raccoons, woodpeckers, and owls. This reserve has a small existing trail used by local fishermen and nature enthusiasts. There is an old road you can follow up the slope which we hope to extend into a trail to the top.
From Owen Sound, head west on Highway 21. Turn north down Nicols Gully Road. The reserve is located on the north side of the road, south of the River.
