The last nature walk for 2009 at Chek Jawa Boardwalk with the Naked Hermit Crabs will be on Boxing Day.
Come on down and join us. Let the kids go wild on nature during the school holidays. It is a lot of fun for the family and we can help you sneak in a story or two about the plant and animal biodiversity on our precious island.
Even though we are not going on to the shore, there is still much to see and enjoy. There are monitor lizards, fiddler crabs, spiders, rare plants, wild boars, mudskippers and lots of fruit trees. If we are lucky, we might even spot the Oriental Pied Hornbill, White-bellied Sea Eagle and the giant Atlas Moth.
Please register with firstname.lastname@example.org in small groups of 6 or less.
Date: 26 Dec 2009 (Saturday)
Time: 9 am (Note the change to '9 am'!)
Duration: 2 hours
Meeting Place: Chek Jawa Information Kiosk
Cost: no charge for now.
How to get to Chek Jawa?
1) Take the bumboat to the island of Pulau Ubin from Changi Village.
2) Once you arrive at Ubin, you can find a lot of island taxis (vans) near the jetty. Tell the taxi driver to take you to Chek Jawa.
Give yourself 1 hour to travel from Changi Village to Chek Jawa.
Chek Jawa not enough?
