A Tell-all about Red Hill’s red -headed larrikin – the glorious Gang-gang

5.30pm Wednesday 24 August, Federal Golf Club

The Red Hill precinct is important for Gang gangs, supporting about 10 breeding pairs and has been the subject of considerable survey and research. A third of all the known nest sites for this species, across its total range, are on or in the vicinity of Red Hill. Come and learn about Red Hill’s Gang-gangs and how you can be further involved in their study and conservation. 

Dr Michael Mulvaney will be presenting the findings of 5 years of Gang-gang study by Red Hill Regenerators in conjunction with the Canberra Ornithological Group, the ACT Government and hundreds of other citizen scientists. The study has revealed much that was previously unknown about the Gang-gang feeding and nesting behaviours and tells us much about our local birds.

Wearing a mask is encouraged.  Please only attend if you are well and don’t have any COVID 19 symptoms.

Parkcare Annual report for 2020/21 released

The Parkcare annual report for 2020/21 was recently published, providing an interesting snapshot about the massive contribution made by volunteers like the Red Hill Regenerators, to repair and maintenance of the ACT reserves. Note: the report does not reflect Regenerators effort, which even at the height of the Covid pandemic, contributed 881 recorded hours of often individual volunteer visits to Red Hill.

Why is Red Hill called Red Hill?

Can you tell Tonalite from Dactite? Why is Hornsfels so interesting? Answers to these and other questions can be found in this simple guide to the ancient origins of Red Hill. Find more information here…
