Latest RUMblings: Jul-Sep 2018

The RUMblers (as R.U.M. volunteers are called) have been busy cleaning up mangroves and, together with Sea Angel volunteers, supporting community work at Pulau Ubin!

Here's a glimpse at what we have been up to recently.

Mangrove clean up continues!

Lisa Lim and her stalwart volunteers from Nature Society did two cleanups involving a total of 50 volunteers who removed 230 kgs of trash from the R.U.M. restoration site at Jalan Durian. More here and  here. For updates on the next clean up, join the R.U.M. facebook group or register as a R.U.M. volunteer.

Launch of Ah Mah's Drinkstall

The RUMblers also came together to support the launch of the heritage wall at Ah Mah's Drinkstall. Organised by Singapore Heritage Society (SHS) and the NUS architecture team who rebuilt the stall, the launch was hosted by Minister Desmond. Supporting this event were volunteers from Sea Angel and R.U.M. We had fun sharing about mangroves.

Sharing about R.U.M.

In August, Lisa Lim shared about her work with R.U.M. and many other nature volunteer opportunities during the Sea our Shores Workshop by the youths of Lepak In SG for International Year of the Reef 2018.

Meanwhile, Phillip continues to take visitors on tours of Pulau Ubin, sharing about the mangroves and the work of R.U.M.
One of the many groups Phillip Lim shared with.

In September, thanks to Prof Dan Friess, we had a chance to share about our work with his esteemed colleagues on 26 Sep 2018. So wonderful to meet and learn from so many passionate leaders. And nice that people liked our R.U.M. colouring sheets!
