60 years of achievement

NPA ACT is celebrating its 60th anniversary in 2020 with the theme Protecting our national parks for future generations. This will be an occasion for us to reflect on our many achievements in the protection and promotion of national parks, most notably the key role we played in the creation of Namadgi National Park as well as to forge new directions and to respond to the  daunting environmental challenges that we face today. These include climate change, species extinction and poor management of our natural resources, among others. A Forum was held on 06/04/19 to plan our way forward. The report is here.

Throughout 2020, NPA ACT will hold a number of events to highlight the beauty, importance and critical needs of our national parks. Watch this website for information about a competition for young photographers, a camping experience for families, commemorative nature walks,  a special evening for members and invited guests  to celebrate this significant milestone, and more.

Photo competition: Due to the bushfires the start of the photo competition will have to deferred until Namadgi NP reopens. Other events may also be affected.

Other 60th events are here.
