2018/9 Landholder Environment Grants program

Dear landholder.

I’d like to let you know, or remind you, that one of the activities that the MRCCC undertakes is to provide assistance to landholders in the Sunshine Coast hinterland to access support through the Council’s grants program. Typically this is via the Landholder Environment Grants program that is funded by the Environment Levy. It is available each year for on-ground projects that help protect and enhance the natural values of the area.

The application process starts on the 3rd December this year with submission of an Expression of Interest. I am available to assist you with submitting your EOI, property visit/s, advice regarding eligible project types, project development, application writing and submission. You also may have a project that dove-tails into other MRCCC programs that are running in your area (fencing, off-stream watering, weed control, stream bank stabilisation, revegetation) and I can guide you with this.

I will be setting up office at the Kenilworth Visitor Information Centre on the 2nd Wednesday of each month from next week (14th November) to the 13th February 2019. The grant application closes on the 26th February 2019 and will provide support for your project throughout 2019/20 financial year.

Please let me know if you would like to discuss project possibilities. You may come and see me at the Kenilworth Visitor Information Centre – please contact me to make a time so that I can be available and not be working with someone else when you come.

I look forward to working with you to enhance our natural environment while supporting your property enterprise/activities.

Communities required to map freshwater turtle locations

TurtleSAT is a new website where communities are mapping the location of freshwater turtles in waterways and wetlands across the country. Australia’s unique freshwater turtles are in crisis – their numbers are declining and your help is needed to record where you see turtles in your local area.
