Plant Walk at Venus Forest Trails

Date : 26 Mar 2017
Time : 9.15 am to 11.30 am
Location : Meet inside the Venus Drive car park off Upper Thomson Road.

Members Only

Led by Angie Ng, Jenny Lim and Andrew Tay, we will visit parts of the loop trail and newly-opened boardwalk at Venus Drive that wind through the forest and a former kampong (village). Expect to encounter useful plants typical of kampong kitchen gardens such as the Fragrant Pandan and Curry Leaf tree. Ornamental greens that have run wild here include the Dumbcane and Kwan Im Bamboo. Natives such as the Tree Fern, Sendudok and Simpoh Air thrive on the banks of the lovely fish-filled forest stream. We will look for the exotic bat-leafed Air Potato vine and discuss the enigmatic tree pandans growing here. Are they our garden pandan all grown up? Bring along your binoculars to observe the wild critters that live here.
