The W.A. Minister for Fisheries and Wildlife, H.D. (David) Evans M.L.A., launched the draft management plan for the nine nature reserves in the Shire of Toodyay, at a public function in the Toodyay Memorial Hall, hosted by the Shire, with assistance from the Toodyay Naturalists’ Club. The draft was released for discussion by Toodyay Shire Council, reserve neighbours and local community members. The plan, entitled Nature reserves of the Shire of Toodyay, was written by Susan A. Moore, Andrew A.E. Williams, Ian G. Crook and Graeme R. Chatfield, of the Western Australian Wildlife Research Centre, Wanneroo, and published by the W.A. Department of Fisheries and Wildlife.
