My guided tour for ACE SENIORs at Sungei Buloh on 18 Feb 2017 February 19, 2017
The weather was perfect, cool and breezy and an enthusiastic small gathering of friends from ACES made the event even more interesting.
We sighted 2 cros, 2 snakes, several orb web spiders, lots of mangrove trees with interesting root systems, some egrets, red shanks, and a few white belly sea eagles.
Their first experience of encountering cros in the wild, watching closeup at green whip snakes and tree climbing crabs, were highlights during the 2 hour tour. A brief intro to the wonderful world of migratory birds that visit us annually opened their eyes to how our living environment owes much to our feathered friends.
Hope more members can join us the next time.

Farewell to the Tembusu Tree at Palm Valley February 15, 2017
While we lament the fall and demise of this grand old tembusu tree at Palm Valley at SBG on 11.2.2017, at 425pm, and also for the 3 injured and 1 dead, we celebrate the good that this tree has provided us all these 270 years, providing oxygen, aesthetics and awe inspiring vision for all who admire its presence along the road at Palm Valley. Its one of the heritage trees that is designated as such in this garden and it will be missed by those who know it, including me.
