‚ÄčThe LeTort Regional Authority has been awarded $7,245 grant through the South Mountain Partnership to fund improvements on the LeTort Nature Trail in Carlisle.  The improvements include the installation of distance markers and informational signs along the 1.5-mile trail. Also, a native plant garden will be constructed near the trailhead at LeTort Park to reduce erosion near the stream.  Partners on the project include the Carlisle Garden Club, Audubon Pennsylvania, and Carlisle Borough Parks and Recreation Department. 

The Authority must secure $7,245 in matching funds via donations and volunteer hours to support the $14,290 project.
