14 Jun (Sat): Figs Revisited
While dipterocarps and the welcome appearance of other infrequently flowering trees dominate botanical small talk these days, the figs, as always, continue to flourish, fig, and feed animals of our forests. Figs are amongst the most important elements of our tropical forests. Join Angie Ng, first author of the Science Centre’s ‘Guide to the Fabulous Figs of Singapore’, on a tour of figs, both wild and planted (including some newly planted specimens). Join us as we experience the lure of the ficus from one of NSS' original ‘figgies’.
Time: 9 - 11am
Venue: Meet at the Singapore Botanic Gardens' Visitor Centre (Palm Court)
