What kind of stories would forests tell if they could speak?

About this Event

Ever wanted to know why nature groups are kicking up a fuss about the Cross Island Line? Perhaps you need an extra pair of eyes to spot those uncommon animals and plants? Or maybe you just want a morning away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Whatever your purpose, BES Drongos is proud to take you on a free guided walk into our biggest nature reserve, as we share with you about the history and relevance of Macritchie, a story our forests would tell if they could speak.

Just sign up, show up and let us do the rest.

Set foot on the Petai Trail, a boardwalk trail (part of the longer Prunus-Petai Trail) at the east end of Macritchie Reservoir Park. The trail consists of a gravel path and a boardwalk, which is relatively level and can be walked by people of all ages.

Length: Approx. 5km

Duration: 2.5 hours

Meeting Time: 8.45am (We begin promptly at 9am.)

Meeting Place: Mushroom Cafe at the toilet hut near the entrance of Macritchie Reservoir Park. The nearest bus stop is MacRitchie Reservoir, served by buses 52, 74, 130, 132, 162, 162M, 163, 165, 166, 167, 852, 855. It is also within walking distance from Caldecott MRT station.

Recommended attire: long pants and covered walking shoes.

Bring: Your own water bottle, umbrella/poncho, insect repellent and cap/hat

*Please do not bring along any plastic bags as monkeys have learned to associate it with food! Eating during the trail is not encouraged.*

In case of wet weather, we may delay the start of the walk and continue if it's a light drizzle, or postpone to another date if unable to proceed.

In case of severe haze (i.e. PSI above 100), we will call off the walk and will notify you via SMS by 7.30am.
