    The Mt Hallowell and Wilson Inlet foreshore reserves are significant areas of bushland in the Shire of Denmark due to their location, size and proximity to the township.

    Mt Hallowell Reserve (532 ha) is designated as a conservation priority area for the maintenance of flora and fauna and all ecological processes in the natural environment. Wilson Inlet foreshore reserve (113.5 ha) contain sites of ecological, historical and cultural significance and also supports a variety of recreational activities.

    In 2008 the shire adopted management plans for these reserves which recommended that fungi, flora, bird and fauna surveys be conducted.

    Surveys of fauna and fungi were conducted in 2010-11. With the help of State NRM Program funding, this project will survey flora and vegetation communities as well as birdlife.

    The project will encourage community members such as Conservation and Land Management TAFE students to participate in the field surveys to build capacity within the community.
