The Nungarin Heritage & Nature Trail is located in remnant bushland adjacent to the townsite of Nun-garin. It is a superb example of Salmon Gum and Gimlet woodland, and attracts tourists as well as being an important recreation area for locals. The tracks that make up the Nungarin Heritage & Nature Trail already exist, however many additional vehicle and bush tracks have been carved out, legally and illegally throughout the surrounding remnant bushland. However, the numerous tracks were proving confusing, and illegal activities such as trailbike riding, were creating erosion problems and spreading weeds and rubbish. The Nungarin Community Development Group applied in 2010 to Wheatbelt NRM for a Small Community Grant to restore these tracks to bushland by revegetation. Other community groups involved included The Tidy Towns committee, Wheatbelt Markets Com-mittee and Museum Group, along with assistance from the Shire’s Natural Resource Management Officer. One community planting day coincided with School’s Tree Planting Day. Native fauna were selected for featuring on signs and the signs and seating were erected along the trail by community members.
