Canberra’s park rangers showcase the bush capital with a week of events

From Monday 17June to Sunday 23 June 2019, our park rangers have organised events that will allow everyone to meet a ranger and see what our parks and reserves have to offer.

This week we’re highlighting our bush capital’s natural surroundings, nature parks, plants and animals and work to conserve and protect them.
