Mal Graham begins the first Ecological Outcomes Monitoring session on Chereninup Reserve. This program is carried out across Australia at most Bush Heritage reserves and is designed to tell us how the bush is faring under our management. At each site a 50 metre transect is set up to monitor changes in the vegetation, soil surface and tree health over time. Birds are surveyed at the same site each spring during the breeding season.
