In collaboration with NParks’ Sungei Buloh Wetlands Reserve management, NUS Toddycats and friends have helped to grow a coastal forest at Kranji Coastal Nature Park. The habitat enrichment programme which involves soil preparation, planting and sapling protection (SPA) has been conducted over these past two years, and now is in a fortnightly cycle.
Before our upcoming break in Jan 2023 for Chinese New Year, we are conducting three more sessions this year, in celebration of SBWR’s 29th Anniversary, and everyone is invited to join us at these sessions:
Sat 26th Nov 2022: 8.00am – 10.00am: Sapling Protection Action [Link]
Sat 3rd Dec 2022: 8.00am – 10.00am: Soil Prep and Tree Planting [Link]
Sat 17th Dec 2022: 8.00am – 10.00am: Soil Prep and Tree Planting [Link]
Upon registration, you will receive a confirmation email, and instructions about preparation.
Our November sessions for Sapling Protection Action at Kranji Coastal Nature Park (KCNP) is now open for registration. Come, join us on an environmentally therapeutic session to tend to the newly planted saplings at KCNP to help accelerate the afforestation efforts there.
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.
