Help set NPA on course for the future

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.

He was a member of NPA’s Executive Committee, including a period as Hon Treasurer, during the 60s and 70s. He was also active with the Coast and Mountain Walkers of NSW and a founding member of the Budawang Committee.
