October is officially National Parks Authority (NPA) Awareness Month.

This year’s celebration will take place under the recurring theme: “Conserving Nature, Sustaining Lives.” To this end, the National Parks Authority has launched a month of activities aimed at cultivating a sense of pride in SVG’s natural, cultural, and historical treasures among our nation’s people. 

The NPRBA strives to engender pride among the Vincentian population for its natural resources by fostering attitudes which promote peaceful co-existence with, and enjoyment of the environment.  We therefore encourage all Vincentians to plan a visit to a national park site near you.  The survival of the SVG National Parks System and our natural and cultural heritage sites depend on how well we appreciate and treat our environment.

The list of activities which will be hosted by the National Parks, Rivers, and Beaches Authority (NPRBA) are highlighted below.
