Help establish a coastal forest at Kranji Coastal Nature Park

Since November 2020, NUS Toddycats & Friends have been working to support NParks’ project to establish a coastal forest at Kranji Coastal Nature Park, which is part of Sungei Buloh Wetlands Reserve.

Coastal vegetation were mostly cleared by settlements and reclamation for the reservoir construction by the 1970’s. SBWR was extended to the western edge of Kranji Reservoir in 2014, and the problem of coastal erosion there was addressed with revetment works.

By 2020, scrub vegetation along the coast was cleared and NParks began to introduce a coastal forest. NUS Toddycats was excited to be part of the programme, having spent almost a decade cleaning that coast of accumulated marine trash in the 2000s.

Some 350 volunteers have toiled over soil preparation, tree planting and sapling protection action these past 18 months. It’s been a privilege and we are always glad to be able to invite new faces to this effort.

Here are five Saturday late afternoon dates you can sign up for; just register using the links below.

See you there!
