Community involvement encourages long-term, consistent projects, and high quality care and maintenance for bushland reserves. Many groups have successfully applied for grants for large works which are beyond their capacity as volunteers. Grants have brought much-needed money and work into the Mountains.

Grants have funded such projects as tracks, steps and boardwalks, bridges, restoration of creeklines, drainage structures and wetlands, interpretive signage, professional bush regeneration teams, and environmental education.
