The Quoll Connection

A book event with Nigel Featherstone and Harry Saddler
Introduction by ecologist and science communicator Belinda Wilson
Sunday 20 November 2022, 2 – 4pm
Terroux Peace Garden, 88 Rochford Road, Hall (off Wallaroo Road)

Barbara Baikie and Peter Fletcher welcome you back to Terroux for this first post-COVID author event, featuring the authors of two wildly different books with a quoll connection: Nigel Featherstone – My Heart is a Little Wild Thing (Ultimo Press) and Harry Saddler – Questions raised by Quolls (Affirm Press).

Belinda Wilson specialises in threatened species conservation and reintroduction biology. She is finalising her PhD where she explored trials, tactics, behaviour, movement, and recovery in reintroduced eastern quolls (murunguny in the Indigenous Ngunnawal language) as part of the Mulligans Flat-Goorooyarroo Woodland Experiment.

The discussion will be facilitated by Barbie Robinson from Living Arts Canberra

Enjoy the late Spring gardens at Terroux and join us for a stimulating but relaxed book discussion. A generous home-made country style afternoon tea is included in your ticket.
