NPWS Friends of Parks Grant Programs

Friends of Parks grant programs recognise the significant work undertaken by Friends of Parks groups supporting South Australia’s national parks and conservation programs.

This funding helps groups to undertake a range of threat abatement, biodiversity conservation, Aboriginal cultural heritage and European heritage projects in the state’s national parks and reserves, and includes off-park landscape-scale threatened species or other eligible projects.
