Fall fairs are ingrained in Grey County's history. Most still celebrate the season the way it has been done for well over a century in rural Ontario, with livestock and trained animal shows; bake-offs; fruit, vegetable, flower and preserve contests; parades; quilt and art shows; farm equipment displays; BBQ dinners and live entertainment.
The Webwood Falls Nature Reserve is located north of the Town of Kimberley in the municipality of Grey Highlands. The property was donated by Mr. James Horwood, a longtime supporter of the Bruce Trail Conservancy. It now stands in permanent protection as part of the Bruce Trail Conservation Corridor.
Two small streams converge on the property and pass over a significant drop in the Escarpment, creating a spectacular waterfall. The stream continues through a deep, forested river valley that cuts through the southern portion of the property. A diversity of habitats, including regenerating fields, mature Sugar Maple forest and meadow marsh support 261 documented species, including 219 plant species and 42 faunal species; in addition several Species at Risk and provincially and/or federally Endangered species are found on Webwood Falls Nature Reserve.
