In 2006 a Memorial plaque to Thom Washburn was bonded to a rocky escarpment at the Caughey-Taylor Nature Preserve in Bocabec, near St. Andrews New Brunswick.
The plaque is located at the highest point on a trail which winds through enchanted glens, over rocky streams, around a brackish tidal pond, through a salt marsh and near aboriginal middens. The land encompassing this soul-inspiring lookout was given to Thom's parents by his grandfather, Earl Caughey (1906-1993), on the understanding that ownership would be transferred to the Nature Trust of New Brunswick when the Trust secured the other half of the pond. This was accomplished and the Preserve was opened in 1999.
