ParkCare Patch - Friends of Mulligans Flat

Friends of Mulligans Flat

Friends of Mulligans Flat carry out work to assist the ACT Parks and Conservation Service and the Woodland and Wetlands Trust in their management of Mulligans Flat Woodland Sanctuary and the broader Mulligans Flat Nature Reserve, adjacent to the suburbs of Throsby, Forde and Bonner in Gungahlin.  Volunteering with us offers unique opportunities to work on a ground-breaking ecological restoration project.


Mulligans Flat Woodland Sanctuary was established by the ACT Government in 2009 with the construction of a predator-proof fence encircling 485 hectares of critically endangered Yellow Box-Blakely’s Red Gum grassy woodland, with the aim of eradicating feral animals, reintroducing native species, and restoring the ecological health of the woodland.  The Sanctuary has since been expanded to incorporate parts of Goorooyarroo Nature Reserve and now protects over 1200 hectares.  The Mulligans Flat Learning Centre will open in late 2020 in the suburb of Throsby.

Our Friends group hold work parties with ACT Park Rangers on the second Wednesday of the month (9.30-12) and walking tours on Sunday mornings a few times a year.  Please wear appropriate clothing including covered shoes and a hat, and bring water – morning tea is provided.  Activities may include weeding, erosion control, or fencing.   Our volunteers can also sign up for a diverse range of opportunities with Trust ecologists, such as wildlife surveys, turtle and hatchling patrols, and assisting with public programs.  Register via betterimpact using the link below to receive further information about all our volunteer opportunities.


We’d love you to join us!
