Gidge Reserve, or Reserve 2145, is situated on the Perth side of the village
where the fire shed and Percy Cullen oval are. It is just one of over 1,000
nature reserves that exist in Western Australia. All have been set aside
especially for the conservation of flora and fauna.
In nature reserves we, the people, are guardians, not exploiters. Western
Australian flora and fauna are sources of enormous interest and contribute
a great deal to the aesthetic qualities of our Western Australian environment.
Nature conservation through reserves is well worthwhile, but without
appreciation of their beauty, variety and intricate interdependencies, one
whole side of the value of nature reserves is lost. Without appreciation they
just become tracks of unnamed land.

The Friends group aim is to give those who take time to look a glimpse of a
few elements of our countryside and play some part in enhancing the quality
of life for this and future generations.
If any of the above appeals or inspires you, you are most welcome to come along to one of our meetings.
