Canberra & Region Heritage Festival April 2016

Storyteller Cherie Burns will perform as part of the Tell Your Story event at The Woolshed, Mulligans Flat Woodland Sanctuary on Saturday 9 April, from 10am – 12:00pm


Mulligans Flat Woodland Sanctuary is a unique project designed to rehabilitate an important section of endangered Box-Gum Grassy Woodland, of which there is less than 1% remaining in Australia. The project has reintroduced several birds and animals into the woodland including Bettongs and Brown Tree Creepers.
The Conservation Council is recording stories about the history of Mulligans Flat and we would love to hear about your current and past experiences in the woodland and living next to nature. Bring the family and watch their faces light up as they lose themselves in the mesmerizing storytelling and delicious sausages.
