6 Sep (Thu): Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve with Cicada Tree Eco Place

This wetland reserve is now a resting and feeding spot for migratory birds. But it also hosts a fantastic diversity of native fauna and flora. In the past, the area had several kampongs (villages) with the locals tending to vegetable and fruit tree plots. Many of these fruit trees and traditional herbs still survive and may be encountered along the trails. The people also constructed fish and prawn ponds in the mangroves. These are now used by the birds.

Of late, otters, civets & estuarine crocodiles have also made Sg. Buloh their home. Come see for yourselves!
