1 Dec (Fri): Night Critter Watch at Rainforest Boardwalk

Join Cicada Tree Eco Place for this walk at the Singapore Botanic Gardens, a lovely old garden created almost 200 years ago. It still retains its original Primary Rainforest patch and this is where we will be exploring to look for the nocturnal critters living here. Although now totally surrounded by housing, busy roads and more development, the garden is still home to some wildlife.
Four species of lovely owls have been recorded in this patch—the Spotted Wood-owl, Collared Scops-owl, Brown Hawk-owl, and the Buffy Fish-owl who breeds here. Both insect and fruit eating bats roost in the garden’s palm trees. Kids get to try out our bat detector. As dusk falls, we venture onto the boardwalk to look for nocturnal creepy-crawlies, and maybe a sleeping Whip Snake too.

More info and tickets on facebook.

Meeting and end point: Singapore Botanic Gardens, Visitor Centre at Nassim Gate entrance at Nassim Road.
Cost: $13 per participant, free for kids of participants aged 6 yrs and below
