ACT Parks and Conservation has launched its June Explore Program to encourage visitors to Canberra’s parks and reserves this winter.

Director of the Agency, Daniel Iglesias said twilight guided tours, forest critters, koala spotting and bird drawing were some of the activities the program offered.

“Don’t let the cold stop you from getting outdoors and exploring our bush capital this winter,” Mr Iglesias said.

“The program runs across Tidbinbilla, Jerrabomberra Wetlands and Mulligans Flat Nature Reserve, offering activities every weekend for people of all ages.”

He said the twilight tour was a good way to search for animals in the Mulligans Flat Sanctuary at night, experiencing the Australian bush as it was a century ago.

“For a daytime activity, take a walk on the wild side with a ranger and learn about potoroos and other inhabitants of the eucalypt forest,” Mr Iglesias said.

He said the Critters of the Forest program is on every Saturday in June and is a great way to spend an afternoon with family and friends.

“If your interests extend more to animals of the feathered variety, join wildlife and botanical artist Peter Marsack to learn how to draw the beautiful birds of Jerrabomberra Wetlands,” Mr Iglesias said.

“His workshop will be held on 24 June.”
