So come join us on this walk through Singapore’s Central Catchment Nature Reserve. Learn more about the natural heritage of our tiny island. And if we’re lucky, we might meet some of our scaly friends!

Our coming walk will be held on Sunday, 29 July 2018, 8.00AM-12.00PM

Come visit us at the Festival of Biodiversity!

As part of FoB2018, we will also be collaborating with the Vertebrate Study Group to bring you a night walk through Tampines Eco-Green! Although it is an urban park, a stroll through this green patch can be very rewarding. See the many bats flying in the sky as dusk falls. Listen to the bellowing call of the Banded Bullfrog. If we’re lucky, we may even come across a snake or two!

This walk will take place on Saturday, 2 June 2018, 7.00PM-9.00PM

It’s March! And we’re excited to be bringing you another walk, where we march (pun intended) up Bukit Timah Hill! We’d love it if you could join us for this walk!

School’s out and we’re back!

After finishing our gruelling exams and projects, us herpers like nothing better than taking a nice hike up to the summit of Bukit Timah. It’s a nice walk and helps us burn those calories we gained while mugging for the examinations. We’d love it if you could join us for this walk! We want to show you more Herps! These misunderstood creatures are often thought of as scary or unnecessary. But in reality, these reptiles and amphibians are important and integral to the Singaporean ecosystem!

This walk will take place on Saturday 23 December 2017, 8.00AM-11.00AM

Creepy Crawlies and Herps that can be found in Singapore’s green spaces!

Creepy Crawlies, Reptiles and Amphibians are often thought of as scary or dangerous! But nothing could be further from the truth. These creatures are integral aspects of fully functioning ecosystems. Yet, they are regularly overlooked and even shunned by people. So, to show how important and beautiful these creatures really are, HSS and ENSING are joining forces to bring you our first collaborative walk at Venus Loop. So what are you waiting for? Sign up!

This Free Guided Walk is held on Saturday, 30th September 2017, 8.30AM-11.30AM
