Why are we doing these free nature walks?
Simply because we want to share our love for the mangroves and inter-tidal ecosystems with you. These walks have proven to be an eye-opener to many people who do not realise there is much richness in plant and animal life in the coastal regions of Singapore. This is a public outreach programme run entirely by volunteers, and our heartfelt desire is to see more people understand the importance of nature conservation of our natural shorelines.
An interesting bit of information: we have done over six years of free boardwalk trips to Chek Jawa! Our first guided walk was in September 2007. How many visitors attend our Chek Jawa walks in a year? Roughly 500. Do help us spread the word!
How do you sign up for our walks?
It's easy. You sign up at our Online Registration Form, and we give you a reply to confirm the places that you need.
Typically, we open registration one month before the walk, and replies are processed during the weekend. Do be patient with us as we all hold day jobs, and we will get round to doing replies.
If you have questions, please write to us at email@example.com
Who can sign up for the walks?
We welcome small groups of friends and family.
Our walks are not designed for large groups from schools, corporates or other organisations. If you are organising a day trip for a large group of people, it is best if you contact the professional nature guides or event organisers.
