Our last morning Chek Jawa Boardwalk for 2014!

It was a huge turnout for the walk on 27 September with about 60 eager participants that were excited to discover Chek Jawa's rich biodiversity!

Look at all those radiant smiles! 

We saw many mangrove crabs such as the tree climbing crabs which has a diet that mainly consists of leaves and can climb trees up to 6m high!

Unfortunately, the mangrove boardwalks are closed from 29 September 2014 to 31st January 2015 and we will not be able to have walks at Chek Jawa.

27 Sept, Saturday: Free guided walk at Chek Jawa Boardwalk

If you have joined us last Saturday for our Pasir Ris Mangrove Boardwalk and would like to join us for the Chek Jawa Boardwalk, we are glad have been bitten by the nature bug and are joining us again! No worries if you have not joined any of our walks because here is the chance for you to do so on 27 September, Saturday!

We have been doing free nature trips to Chek Jawa Boardwalk for nearly 7 years now. Each month, we bring small groups of visitors out on to introduce them to the plant and animals found in the mangroves and intertidal areas of Chek Jawa. All from the safety and convenience of the boardwalk. There is always plenty to see on these trips, such as wild boars, insects, lots and lots of crabs, spiders, snakes, fishes, perhaps a jellyfish or two in the sea, and not forgetting the birds in the forests and flying high above us. Who says there is no nature in Singapore! Come explore Chek Jawa with the Crabs!
