Friends of Mulligans Flat

Geographic focusThe Mulligans Flat and Goorooyarroo Nature Reserves, located on the north-eastern border of the ACT, covering approximately 1600 hectares.  It stretches from the Federal Highway to the north of Mulligans Flat Road and abuts the suburbs Throsby, Forde and Bonner.  

Our volunteers work within the Mulligans Flat Woodland Sanctuary, an area of over 1280 hectares surrounded by a predator-proof fence, as well as in the wider Reserves. The Sanctuary is a unique ecological and research partnership between the ACT Government, the ANU and the Woodlands and Wetlands Trust aiming to restore endangered box-gum grassy woodlands.  As part of this experiment, locally extinct species such as the eastern quoll and eastern bettong have been reintroduced.

Regular work parties and other activities: We hold monthly work parties on the 2nd Wednesday of the month and occasional ad hoc work parties as needed.  Activities can include weed removal, erosion control, revegetation and other land management tasks.  The Friends of Mulligans Flat also run a range of community-focused activities including:

* annual autumn and spring guided Bird Walks,
* spring Wildflower or Woodland Walks
* our very popular ‘Science in the Sanctuary’ forum with updates on the ecological and research activities being conducted in the Sanctuary.
