Lookout Loop project brought to life

Local community groups, not-for-profit organisations, schools, individuals and volunteers can now apply for the Limestone Coast Landscape Board Grassroots Grants.  

The Grassroots Grants program supported 11 projects across the Limestone Coast in 2021/2022. 

A share in $255,000 is available in the 2022/23 round of grants.  

Mount Burr Trails Incorporated was one of the successful 2021/2022 grant recipients.  

The Lookout Loop project led to the creation of nature-based trails for people to enjoy in the Mount Burr area.  

Mount Burr Trails Incorporated spokesperson Rob Gordon said the purpose of the project was to create well maintained trails where community members can take their families and connect or reconnect with nature in beautiful surroundings.  

“Grassroots Grants funding has allowed us to forge ahead with the establishment of the Lookout Loop walking trail and it has been a wonderful opportunity being supported by the Limestone Coast Landscape Board,” he said.  

Limestone Coast Landscape Board chair Penny Schulz encouraged the community to apply as part of the 2022/2023 Grassroots Grants program. 

“The Limestone Coast Landscape Board is excited to see the diverse range of projects put forward from the community,” she said. 

“The Grassroots Grants program was established in 2020 and the past two rounds has helped fund a total of 27 projects achieving fantastic results in landscape management.  

“The purpose of the grant funding program is to provide opportunities for groups and organisations to undertake their own projects with environmental and community benefits in the Limestone Coast.”
