During the two week period between May 14th 2007 to May 27th 2007 the Department of Environment and Conservation (WA) will be conducting an aerial and ground burning program in the vicinity of Queen Victoria Springs Nature Reserve, Plumridge Lakes Nature Reserve and Neale Junction Nature Reserve.

Most of the burning will occur away from normal tourist routes, but there may be some burning conducted along the main access routes to Neale Junction and the Plumridge Lakes Nature Reserve.

A map of the areas will be made available in the next week or so on the DEC website www.naturebase.net

The autumn burning is part of research into manageable prescribed fire treatment of spinifex and to assist in creating small mosaics to stop the run of the larger, uncontrollable wildfires in the desert.

For further information contact the Goldfields DEC office on (08) 9080 5555.

They could have saved themselves 200 years and countless dollars if they had followed the actions of the original tenants ;-))
