The living classroom




















Set in 130haof mangroves, mudflats, ponds and secondary forest is a rare oasis of natural wonders and tranquility, home to unique plants and animals, as well as a wintering ground for migratory birds.

Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve has been protected as a nature reserve in recognition of the valuable biodiversity that it harbours.

I was a parent volunteer in Jayne's class Science Field trip to Sungei Buloh on Friday, 20 July, 2007 (the 2007 2007). This National Parks is committed to the convservation of wetland through research and education.

A close encounter with nature awaits the kids. We had an approx. 30 mins Mangrove Boardwalk, experience walking through the mangrove without getting our feet wet or muddy.
Along the walk, the mudskippers and tree-climbling crabs were the kids' favourites.

Great blog about what sounds like a wonderful field trip.
I bet Jayne loved the fact you were a volunteer mom.

What an adventure it must have been! According to my experience, the mangrove research has been very very hard to do--it takes a year for a pair of leaves to development in lab condition!

The last time I went there, I ended up with lots of mosquito bites...
