Mulligans Flat Spring spotlighting walk.

Date: 20-Oct-2017

Contact: Please email Isobel on orru@iinet.net.au or 'phone 6257 1860 for further information and/or to make a firm booking.
A joint outing has been booked exclusively for members of Canberra's three major bushwalking clubs, the National Parks Association of the ACT, Canberra Bushwalking Club and Brindabella Bushwalking Club. This 'twilight tour' of the Mulligans Flat Woodland Sanctuary is on the evening of Friday 20 October 2017.
It will be led by a Woodlands and Wetlands Trust ecologist with a good knowledge of the threatened animal species which have been re-introduced to this woodland conservation gem on the northern boundary of the ACT. These species include Eastern Bettong, Eastern Quoll, Bush Stone-curlew, and New Holland Mouse.
There is an informative video, 'A Short History of Mulligans' on the Woodlands and Wetlands Trust website at mulligansflat.org.au for those seeking to learn more about the reserve and its species.
The cost is $30/person, payable in advance. This covers the cost of employing the ranger and gives us access to the woodland sanctuary which is not otherwise accessible at night.
We need 20 participants for this to go ahead. To my mind, it's worth it just to hear the beautifully eerie call of the Bush Stone-curlews, at present being regularly reported on the Canberra Birds chatline.
