History: Calji Pool CNR straddles the East Mortlock River upstream of Duck Pool. In 2004 the VOYRC got permission from the DPI to fence the unallocated crown land on both sides of the river from Caljie Pool Reserve to Duck Pool Rd to create a wildlife corridor (a distance of over 2km). The fencing was supplied by the DoW Avon River Basin Fencing Program and erected by GreenCorp.
