About

We will be planting trees to help restore and enhance the precious wetlands at Kranji Coastal Nature Park that make up Sungei Buloh Wetlands Reserve. Coastal vegetation were mostly cleared by settlements and reservoir construction by the 1970’s. When SBWR was extended to the western edge of Kranji reservoir in 2014, our partnership with NParks allowed us this opportunity to practice habitat enhancement in the area.

Our tree planting session will require that you undertake Soil Preparation before planting a tree. This will require you to loosen and enhance the soils. The steps to soil preparation include:

  1. Weed clearance
  2. Soil exposure
  3. Soil loosening
  4. Soil digging
  5. Soil enhancement
  6. Tree hole readiness

In view of sharp and heavy tools being used, we will not be accepting registrations for children below 12 (unless they have been cleared and participated in our previous sessions)

Date: 22 Oct 2022
Time: 4pm - 6.30pm
