Brunswick Valley Landcare, on behalf of the Yalla Kool Landcare locality group, has been successful in receiving funding to improve the walking track through a community reserve in Ocean Shores.

A $49,816 grant will go towards improving the condition and function of this suburban reserve in Ocean Shores.

Landcare support officer Alison Ratcliffe said, ‘The project will see the group supported through upgrading and formalising the walking track winding through the reserve, which will provide a great link between the shopping centre area and Devines Hill lookout.’

Co-ordinator of the Yalla Kool Landcare group, David Kemp, said, ‘We would love to share this under-utilised green space with the community and will be holding three community events in the next year.’

‘The first one of these events will be a community tree planting in the last week of November,’ he added.
