This handbook provides land managers with information relating to the natural resources of the Shire of Lake Grace, including the landscape, geology, soils, drainage systems, native flora and fauna. Information about native flora and vegetation has been drawn from a variety of sources, including surveys that estimated the distribution of plan communities prior to clearing, recent surveys of privately owned remnants, herbarium collections, surveys of nature reserves and roadside surveys. Some of the problems relating to the management of these resources within the shire and ideas and community initiatives to solve these problems are also discussed. It is hoped that this information will contribute to the long term viability of the agricultural landscape and the conservation of native vegetation within the Shire.
