On 5th November, NPA celebrated its 60th anniversary with a picnic at Tunks Hill in the Lane Cove National Park. A series of bushwalks converged at the park to join other members and special guests, including Penny Sharpe, opposition spokesperson for the environment and Mehreen Faruqi, NSW Greens, who both spoke and congratulated NPA for 60 years as a voice for national parks. Following lunch and speeches the 2017 Volunteer Awards were announced, a toast was made to the next 60 years, and the Anniversary cake was eaten. Images from the photographic exhibition were on display, as were pictures and publications from NPA’s 60 year history of nature conservation and celebration activities. Thanks to Ted Woodley for coordinating the event.
