20 Feb (Sat): Kayaking Mandai Mangroves

Open to the Public - Priority for Nature Society (Singapore) members - Registration Needed

Join Huey in exploring the Important Bird and Biodiversity Area (IBA) of Mandai Mangroves in a kayak. As it is the migratory season, we will also celebrate our bird visitors before they fly home. This paddle is suitable for beginners with the kayaks being stable double-seaters. We will explore Sungei Mandai Besar and Sungei Mandai Kechil where large stands of mature mangroves exist alongside abandoned kampongs. This coastal tract is home to a permanent population of horseshoe crabs. We might spot resident Brahminy Kites and White-bellied Sea Eagles circling overhead, or even a migratory Osprey fishing.

Participants must be at least 8 years old. Kids 12 years old and below must be accompanied by one parent (no guardians) in the same kayak.
