A Raffles Museum Toddycats project
Sungei Buloh Anniversary Walk Guide Recruitment
- a guiding opportunity for novices

Category : events

Learn to be a mangrove guide in 8 hours, as part of team!

Clueless about mangroves? No background in natural history? But if you are keen to contribute to nature, try your hand at Station Guiding!

Learn enough to guide at one station, all of just four points. With the help of some research, props, humor, a dynamic team and just 8 hours of training, you will be ready to communicate the treasures of the mangroves at Sungei Buloh Wetlands Reserve to the public as a Station Guide.

You can also be a Group Guide, chatty people who will learn the route, introduce the station guides, provide an overview of the area and and coordinate the movement of groups.

This event has been conducted since 1997 in conjunction with the anniversary of the reserve. See the Sungei Buloh Anniversary Walk webpage.

Training and guiding dates

  1. Sun 20 Nov: 2pm - 5pm (content training)
  2. Sun 27 Nov: 9am - 12pm (review & guiding techniques)
  3. Wed 30 Nov: 7pm - 9pm (other preparations)
  4. Sun 04 Dec: 10am - 2pm (event)

Signing up

If you are interested, and can make it for all four sessions, email bulohguide@sivasothi.com with;

  1. Full Name
  2. Handphone number
  3. Email address
  4. Any background in mangroves, biology or guiding?

You will receive confirmation upon registration.
