    Boot cleaning stations assist in preventing the spread of dieback by recreational activities.
    Boot cleaning stations assist in preventing the spread of dieback by recreational activities.

    This project will implement hygiene management recommendations in four priority reserves identified in a 2008 study of dieback in peri-urban reserves in Denmark. The reserves cover 625ha and include three important recreational trails: Denmark-Nornalup Heritage Rail Trail, Bibbulmun Track and Munda Biddi Trail.

    Recreational activities pose a high risk of spreading dieback further throughout the reserves and into adjoining areas. Activities of the project include relocation of existing boot cleaning stations, refurbishment of dieback signage, and rationalisation of 4WD tracks.
