The team of Raffles Museum Toddycats guides will be hauling specimens all the way to Lorong Halus Wetland from 8.00am to 12.00pm this Saturday, 24th March 2012. Toddycats were preparing for the session with a training session at NUS Life Sciences Lab 7 last night.
Our team will liven up the atmosphere with stories about wildlife of Singapore and engage visitors with games. In celebration of World Water Day, there will be an aquatic bias and we’re adding some new specimens to the mangrove and terrestrial list. Friends from the Nature Society (Singapore) will be there too, leading a self-guided discovery activity at the wetland.
Raffles Museum Toddycats are ready for
World Water Day celebrations @ Lor Halus Wetland!
If this will be your first visit to the Lorong Halus Wetland, the nearest train station is the Riveria LRT station (buses here: nos. 3, 85, 86) which you can transfer here from Punggol MRT station. A 10 minute walk northeast along the Serangoon River will lead you to the prominent red bridge which you will cross to get to where we will setup shop at 7.30am!
In the map below, I include the bicycle rental kiosk locations from which you can cycle around both Sungei Serangoon and Sungei Punggol along the Northeast Riverine Loop.
A few Toddycats will cycle down from NUS via Bukit Brown past MacRitchie, Lower Peirce and through Yio Chu Kang to Lorong Halus. The LovecyclingSG riders will be passing by at 8.30am according to the schedule. Join us there for a cheery crowd awaits you!
