Hefty changkul work contributes to Habitat Enhancement at Chestnut Nature Park

Sat 14 Jan 2017 – Toddycats Amy Choong, Adriane Lee, Ng Kai Scene, Ong Say Lin, Lim Cheng Puay, Airani S and N. Sivasothi aka Otterman joined a group of about 30 Friends of Chestnut Nature Park to kick off ground up events at this latest buffer park.

The session is called a habitat enhancement exercise because this was no ceremonial tree-planting exercise – we had some truly hefty digging to carry out and with some very thorny palms to handle as well. The session was meaningful and we hope to contrite to more sessions which will contribute to gradual restoration of the vegetation composition and canopy cover.

Thanks to NParks for arranging the event with Friends of Chestnut Nature Park.
