NPA acknowledges the importance of scientific research underlining park management; we provide scholarships to ACT students working on conservation projects in ACT parks, and publish learned Field Guides on plants and animals in the ACT.

A superbly illustrated guide book was published by NPA to open the window on the values of Namadgi National Park to encourage visitors to both value the park and lobby for its protection. NPA books and others pertinent to conservation of plants and animals in the ACT are distributed free to ACT schools by NPA. Periodically NPA organises Symposia to highlight issues, the most recent one a forum on Bushfire Management in the ACT.
