Conservation, Protection and Education for over 50 years

 

 

Welcome

2010 was the 50th anniversary of the founding of the National Parks Association of the ACT.  In 1960 the NPA ACT was established with the prime objective of getting a National Park for the National Capital.  This goal was achieved in 1984, 30 years ago this year, when Namadgi National Park was proclaimed.  Today, the Association works to promote national parks and the protection of our fauna and flora, scenery, natural features and cultural heritage.  We do this by lobbying and by hands-on work parties.  Our outdoor activities include field trips, work parties, day walks, longer pack walks, snow-shoe walks, kayaking and car camps. These enable members to better appreciate and enjoy the natural phenomena and cultural heritage.  Our quarterly full-colour Bulletin is packed with interesting articles about the environment, related issues and members' experiences in the bush.  NPA also publish a good range of expert-edited field guides. At our monthly general meetings, which bring members together to talk with the committee informally and over supper, guest speakers address a wide range of topics.  Please join us.

The 2nd Edition of the Field Guide to the Birds of the ACT is now out.
