The first MacRitchie forest walk this Sat 15 Feb 2014 – a cheerful group of nature guides await!

More than 20 guides have been trained to introduce the public to the forest and freshwater stream system at the MacRitchie forest. Many Singaporeans may not realise that just a few steps into our forests lies a entirely different world, a rarity exclaimed over by naturalists such as Alfred Russell Wallace.

Our Singapore forests have survived numerous challenges to display a myriad of life, with an intertwined existence and of fascinating diversity. Scientists all over the world have come to explore, document and discover the many forest denizens and its time for ordinary Singaporeans to share some of that insight.

Join a group of cheerful and informative guides who will not only regale you with biology but deliver corny jokes too! The walks are specifically crafted to be suitable to people of all ages, and will not be too taxing. Shady forests paths and streams means you will not burn up in the sun!

Discover who the Puff-faced Watersnakes, Pygmy Halfbeak, Saddle Barbs, the Green Crested Lizard, Red-bellied Squirrel, Long-tailed Macaque, Blue-rumped Parrot and the now very famous Colugo!

The next walk will be conducted this Saturday, 15 Feb 2014: 8.30am – 11.30am. Register now for a space at:
