Science in the Sanctuary

Come and celebrate the scientific achievements and developments of our Sanctuary on Thursday 30 June with scientists and Friends of Mulligans Flat.

Why is Mulligans Flat so special? A huge reason is the conservation initiatives founded on innovative research projects. Science in the Sanctuary will give the community the opportunity to find out more about unique ventures like the Eastern Bettong, Quoll, and Bush stone- curlew reintroductions and the long-running woodland bird surveys.

The event is free and everyone is invited. RSVP via Special Events.

Where: Gungahlin Library Community Room

When: 7pm start
