There are many ways an individual may actively participate in all that the Noosa Parks Association (NPA) has to offer.
- For those with particular interests in environmental and/or conservation issues, they may seek to become actively involved with a special interest group, attend the weekly Friday Environment Forum or even become involved at a project officer or management committee level.
- For others, membership of NPA may be seen as an investment in lifestyle protection.
- Whatever your reason for joining us, NPA will always welcome new members!
Complete a Membership Application Form and become a financial member which entitles you to:
- Join in many of the Activities listed on our Events Calendar.
- Volunteer at our Environment Centre or the Noosa Parks Gallery and Information Centre.
- Consider helping on an NPA project which fits in with your availability and suits your particular interests and skills.
- Become acquainted with many like-minded individuals and become better informed about the Noosa environment and its history.
- Become more aware of the issues and concerns with which NPA has become involved over the past number of years.
- Attend Friday Forum and become better educated about a vast range of current conservation and environmental issues.
- Assist in maintaining Noosa’s public spaces through ongoing vegetation work with Greening Noosa or the Noosa National Park weeding group.
- Enjoy a working holiday week at Double Island Point and contribute to maintenance of this pristine environment.
- Become better informed about the current efforts of the Noosa Independence Alliance. This Alliance was formed in an effort to bring about de-amalgamation from the Sunshine Coast Council and self-governance to the Noosa region, with the return of a new Noosa Council.
- Further your community involvement and become a member of the Noosa Biosphere Association (NBA). NBA's aim is to ensure that our Biosphere reserve is correctly managed by an equal partnership between the community and council.
- Make a financial donation to the Association at any time.
- Consider making provisions in your will for a bequest to the NPA trust. This trust was established with the express intent of purchasing land deemed to be of environmental significance. The surest means of ensuring long-term protection of land is to either have it added to national park or declared a nature refuge under Queensland’s Nature Conservation Act.
