Coronavirus Arrangements

To All NPA ACT Members:

Advice from the government and many medical experts currently is to limit organized group activities in an attempt to slow the spread of covid-19 infections and not overwhelm the healthcare system.

In line with this, NPAACT will suspend all meetings, walks and work parties until further notice. This decision is made regretfully and will be reevaluated as the situation evolves. Notification will be sent when our program of activities resumes.

The presentation by Peter Cotsell (ACT Parks) scheduled for Thursday 19/3/20 may become available online.  Members will be notified if/when it is available.

In the meantime, stay as active as possible, look after yourself and your friends and stay well.
Kind regards,
Esther Gallant,
President National Parks Association of the ACT

NPA ACT logo - celebrating 60 yearsWelcome

The National Parks Association of the ACT started in 1960 with the prime objective of establishing a National Park for the National Capital.  Twenty four years later, in 1984, this goal was achieved when Namadgi National Park was proclaimed.  Today, the Association works to promote national parks, their good management, and the protection of our fauna and flora, scenery, natural features and cultural heritage. We do this by lobbying, education and by hands-on work parties.  Our outdoor activities include field trips, work parties, day bushwalks, longer packwalks, 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. We also send out a monthly eNewsletter "Burning Issues"
Please join us.
