Naugle Family Celebrates Bench Memorial

Naugle/DuVall family members gather at the newly dedicated bench.

In memory of their mother and father, the Naugle/Duvall family donated a bench to the Lake Erie Islands Conservancy at Morrison Woods Preserve on South Bass Island.

Lisa Brohl, Lake Erie Islands Conservancy Chair, reports, “We really appreciate this kind of support!  If anyone is interested in having a bench at one of the Conservancy preserves, we will have another opportunity soon at the Duff Woods Preserve.”  Contact LEIC at 419-366-2087.

The Conservancy preserves provide a pleasant escapade into the natural environments on the Bass Islands.
