With Cicada Tree Eco Place

28 Nov (Sun): "Our Home, The Mangroves" at Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve or Pasir Ris Park
Gooey mangrove mud is home sweet home to the mudskipper, fiddler crab, chut-chut snail and many others. These amazing animals use the mud to make tunnels to live in, build mud ‘condos’, and also find their food! The mangrove tree rises above the mud, on its stilt roots. On it, a kingfisher will find a dry perch. Let’s explore the mangroves together and find out who else shares this muddy world! $15 which includes a custom-made button-badge and information pamphlet will be given to all registered kids, pre-registration required. Suitable for kids 5-10 years old, from kindergarten to primary school.

12 Dec (Sun): "Our Home, The Seashore" at Changi Beach
Tides come in and out from the sea. Those living on the seashore have adapted to living with the tides, waves and hot sun. They make their cozy homes in all sorts of things, from rocks and sand, to shells and seaweed. Who are they? Let’s have fun on the seashore and learn all about the plants and animals that call this home. $15 which includes a custom-made button-badge and information pamphlet will be given to all registered kids, pre-registration required. Suitable for kids 5-10 years old, from kindergarten to primary school.
