Vale Colin Watson OAM (1924-2017)

Col was a keen bushwalker who introduced many to the joys of exploring our wild places, especially in the Morton National Park area, over many decades.  As member of the then Central Branch of NPA Executive, he was involved in the push for establishment of the National Parks & Wildlife Service and for a period served on a Regional Advisory Committee. 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.
