30 Nov (Sat): For kids - Exploring Ubin's Kampong and Nature

Our nature-guided stroll will bring us through a herb, spice and medicinal plant garden, coffee, coconut, durian and other fruit tree plantations, mangrove forest, grassland and woodlands. We will also bypass 'kampong' village houses with their backyard flower and food gardens. Along the way, we may encounter wild pigs, jungle chickens, monitor lizards and a diversity of birds and bugs living among the wayside wildflowers. This walk starts and ends in the main village which has remained almost unchanged since the 1960s. Come experience Ubin's culture before its all gone.
