Mulligans Flat – Goorooyarroo Woodland Experiment
State/Territory: ACT

The project aims to understand ways of restoring the structure and function of temperate woodlands to increase biodiversity. In establishing a designed experiment, our intention is to support the managers in their work to conserve woodlands and for it to become a long-term ecological research site and an 'outdoor laboratory' for ecological restoration research, and community and student learning.
