22 Jul (Sat): A walk with your neighbours - the macaques of Bukit Timah

The long-tailed macaques are the most conspicuous animals at Bukit Timah. Although commonly seen, they are very misunderstood. Few seeing them realise anything about the social world these monkeys live in. They have kin networks, power struggles, friends, foes, and an otherwise complex social network. In many ways, they provide a mirror of our own sociality.
If you would like to learn more about your community and the interesting world of your neighbouring macaques at Macritchie, please join our free walk, led by experts from the Jane Goodall Institute Singapore.

Suitable for adults and children above 8 years.

22 Jul (Sat): Kayaking the Hidden Waterways of Sungei Khatib Bongsu

Open to the Public - Registration Needed - Members Priority

Everything at Sungei Khatib Bongsu seems bigger, from clams to trees. Its waterways are confusing, making navigation a challenge. Once inside, it is hard to know where things are relative to each other. Kayaking beneath the hanging roots of an immense fig, one wonders if Sungei Khatib Bongsu could be conserved as one of Singapore’s last great rivers. Join us to explore this natural playground.

Participants must be at least 8 years old. Kids 12 years old and below are entitled to a 50% discount and must be accompanied by a parent (no guardians) in the same kayak.

More details and registration on the NSS website.

Time: 7.45am - 12.30pm
Venue: Sungei Khatib Bongsu
Cost - Member: $110 per person, Non-Member: $136 per person.
