20 Jan 2018 (Sat): Our Mangroovy Mangroves - R.U.M. Walk and Workshop

For the first time, we are organising a visit to the actual site where R.U.M. hopes to carry out Ecological Mangrove Restoration! After this guided visit, join a workshop to brainstorm YOUR ideas on how we should design the restoration of mangroves at Ubin! Registration now open, places are limited.
This workshop is organised by youths of Lepak In SG for International Year of the Reef 2018 with the support of the National Parks Board and Restore Ubin Mangroves (R.U.M.) Initiative.

How do mangroves give us durians and chilli crabs? Singapore got mangroves, meh?

Find out at our FREE workshop at Pulau Ubin! Join a guided walk through Pulau Ubin's amazing mangrove forest with experienced community volunteers. Followed by a workshop for YOU to share your ideas to design a unique ground-up effort to restore mangroves at Pulau Ubin! We are pleased to have the Restore Ubin Mangroves (R.U.M.) Initiative team lead the walk and discussions.

Date: 20th January 2018 (Saturday)
Time: 9.30am - 3pm
Venue: Pulau Ubin Assembly Area

While the Workshop is FREE, do note that you will have to bring along $6 for your 2-way boat ride to Ubin and about $5 for lunch at Pulau Ubin. Delicious home-cooked food available at shops near Ubin Jetty: Chinese as well as halal Malay food. Let's support the Ubin villagers!
