Event description

Description

The Friends of Chestnut Nature Park (FoC) are happy to invite you to wield a changkul and plant trees at Chestnut Nature Park!

Chestnut Nature Park is a green buffer to our precious green lung and biodiversity core, the Central Catchment Nature Reserve. With active contribution by members of the wider community, FoC hopes that Chestnut Nature Park will fulfill its potential both as nature reserve buffer and a vibrant and sustainable recreational space enjoyed by mountain bikers, hikers, heritage and nature lovers alike.

Besides, who doesn't love to plant trees! The forest at Chestnut Nature Park is recovering from a history of use and this can take centuries. We hope to offer a boost to restoration and thanks to NParks, we have this wonderful opportunity to enhance the habitat!

We are happy to invite you to join us on this wonderful privilege!
