04 Dec 2005 - Sungei Buloh Annviversary Walk

Category : events

The 12th Anniversary Morning Walk
at Sungei Buloh Wetlands Reserve (SBWR)
with Raffles Museum Toddycats: 10.00am

All are welcome!

Register by sending an email to: buloh@sivasothi.com
with your full name and the number in your group.
You will receive a reply confirming your email.

On the day of the event, you will meet us at the Visitor Centre at 10.00am; park entry charges apply ($1 adult, child $0.50). You can take TIBS No. 925 from Kranji MRT right to the park. Catch the 9.30am bus else you will be late.

The walk is suitable for children as it is conducted entirely within the vicinity of the Visitor Centre. Be prepared for rain as always. High tides: 12.37pm - 3.2m.

About the walk - Guides will regale you with stories of animals, plants and the ecology of mangroves. Keep your ears and eyes open, and you will ace the quiz we will provide!

Learn the more common species of trees and their uses and understand zonation in the mangroves. Tree-climbing crabs, mudskippers, barnacles and snails are common at the boardwalk, and from the bridge, spot Archer fish, Mullets, Halfbeaks, Garfish, Green chromides and pause to reflect on the invasions of WWII with the view of Johor across the straits. At the main hide, recognise some of the migratory birds and figure out what they are doing.

Throughout, we will keep an eye out for the park's exciting denizens - Water monitors, the resident family of Smooth-coated otters and the even rarer, the crocodile!

Another event by the Raffles Museum Toddycats.
