Talking with an environmental champion - Lou Costa
January 26, 2019 Robert McLean/Lou Costa

Lou Costa and her partner Les live with their new child, Ellis, on a bush block just out of Rushworth in Victoria at the King Billy Retreat.
Lou had been a passionate advocate of the environment since being a small girl and that dedication to nature has never left her and has really played a key role in fashioning her life and is no more evident than what you see when visiting her home - Lou and Les "walk their talk".
She has made those personal concerns about the environment public being a long time member and past president of the Goulburn Valley Environment Group (GVEG), and when roadside trees near her home were threatened by VicRoads works she reacted immediately and the result saw a change in VicRoads' plans, the preservation of many old trees and the creation of the Rushworth Action Group for the Environment (RAGE).
