The Awards recognise consistent, persistent, innovative and significant effort by members in support of NPA’s aims, projects and member activities. Nominations are now being accepted in the following categories.

We are seeking members to fill various NPA Executive, State Council and other positions.
NPA is now at a major turning point. If you have know-how in policy or planning, biodiversity or bushwalking, accountancy or advocacy, media or marketing, across the State or across your region, we would be interested in hearing from you. This is a great opportunity to give something back to NPA and make a personal contribution to nature conservation.
