National Parks Association Southern Sydney AGM 2021
September 29, 2021
The guest speaker for this year’s National Parks Association Southern Sydney Annual General Meeting is Harry Burkitt, General Manager of the Colong Foundation for Wilderness. Harry was awarded “Young Environmentalist of the Year” in 2018 by the Bob Brown Foundation, and he leads the Give A Dam campaign against the Warragamba Dam wall raising.
In this free zoom presentation Harry will speak about the need to protect the ecological integrity of the Blue Mountains World Heritage area, and current threats it is facing: from coal mining, to issues relating to fire, and what will be lost if the dam is raised.
Prior to Harry’s talk NPA SS will hold its AGM. There will be a brief presentation from the President, followed by elections to office positions. Only Branch members can vote or stand for positions but if you are interested and wish to nominate contact the Secretary prior to the meeting.
The Colong Foundation was founded in 1968 to protect the Greater Blue Mountains. The Southern Sydney branch of the National Parks Association (NPA) was established in 1972. Both organisations are committed to maintaining the ecological values of our National Parks.
