It was a rainy Saturday morning, but that did not dampen our spirits for the 21st Sungei Buloh Anniversary Walk!
This year, the anniversary marks another momentous occasion. Sungei Buloh is now ever more accessible to visitors with the opening of the new Kranji extension.
To celebrate with Sungei Buloh, we hosted two activities – a show and tell booth at the new education centre, and an early mangrove walk.
For our early morning walks, 105 spots were filled up within two days of our email invitation to the NUS staff community!
It was great to see the first participant show up at 7 AM, 30 minutes ahead of our stipulated meeting time of 7:30AM. Most participants streamed in between then and 7:45 AM, and I was able to send the first group off with Siva at 7:25 AM, and subsequently, one group was flagged off with a guide every 5 minutes.Back at the new extension, things got busy with with our booth, with Tze Kwan and Weiting helping to keep a lookout and many enthusiastic Toddycats in attendance! MoS Desmond Lee graced the event and was ‘ambushed’ by Jhar, Audrey, Cherry, and Le Min, eager to share with him stories of mangrove critter!
It is a double celebration for us as Sungei Buloh and Otterman share the same birthday.
All in all. it was a great day out, despite the rainy weather. We will be back next year!
