George Brockway (1922 to 1965), probably best known within the scientific circles of this State for his research into tree growth in the arid zones of WA, was also a major contributor to the establishment and maintenance of the extensive system of Nature Reserves in the Central Wheatbelt region. As a conservationist he was concerned with protecting the fragile ecosystem of these drier areas, which he felt was directly threatened by agriculture expansion.
