The Warren sub-region is in the southwest corner of Western Australia and forms part of the South West NRM Region. The Warren sub-region comprises the catchments of the Warren, Donnelly, Meerup, Doggerup, Gardner, Shannon and Deep Rivers, of which the Warren is the major, incorporating the Tone, Perup and Wilagarup Rivers.

The Warren sub-region contains some highly prized natural assets, in particular its waterways and iconic biodiversity. It is equally significant for its highly productive agricultural industry, forestry production and tourism opportunities.  Key threats to these assets include land and water degrading processes such as salinity, acidification and erosion, land use conflicts, introduced pests and diseases and climate change.

The Warren Catchments Council was incorporated on 3 July 2009 under the Associations Incorporation Act 1987. The Warren Catchments Council is a non-government, not-for-profit organisation that coordinates natural resource management within the Warren sub-region.  The council is managed by a team of dedicated community volunteers who’s vision is to sustain healthy forests, rivers, rural enterprises and aspirations within the Warren community.

The Warren Catchments Council acknowledges the contribution made by the community and stakeholders of the Warren sub-region. In particular we acknowledge the assistance of the current and past members of the Warren Catchments Council as well as others who have provided their wealth of experience in NRM in the Warren sub-region, and past and present employees of the Warren Catchments Council.

We acknowledge with gratitude the contribution made by locally-based officers of the State government agencies who have contributed to the Warren Catchments Council projects, including those from the Department of Parks and Wildlife, Department of Agriculture and Food, Department of Water and the Forest Products Commission.

We are also grateful to Councillors and staff of the Shire of Manjimup for their contributions and for their significant ongoing support across many of our activities.

Finally, we thank the South West Catchments Council for their significant support of our work.
