Established in 2006 the purpose of the Protection of the Environment Trust (POET) is to:

  • Promote the protection and enhancement of the natural environment, and the conservation of indigenous flora and fauna in the former Gosford City Council Local Government Area.
  • Provide information or education or the carrying on of research about the natural environment or a significant aspect of the natural environment in particular relating to flora and fauna of the area for the benefit of persons with the Local Government area.

To achieve these purposes the POET runs an annual grant program to provide small amounts of financial support to individuals, groups and organisations in the community that are able to deliver projects and works that contribute to the stated purpose of the Trust.
