In an effort to promote an awareness of Singapore’s natural and historical heritage, and to promote conversations amongst Singaporeans, the HSS has begun the Herp Walk! We want to raise awareness, in particular, about Herps! These misunderstood creatures are often thought of as scary or unnecessary, but we want to show Singaporeans that Herps are important and integral to the Singaporean ecosystem!

Our coming walk commemorates Mother’s Day and will take place on Saturday, 13 May 2017, 8.00AM-11.00AM.

Mother’s Day is just around the corner; do bring your mums outdoors and join us for a pleasant morning walk through the Petai Trail of Macritchie Reservoir! (Although it is not mandatory, we highly encourage participants to sign up alongside their mothers.) Our experienced nature guides will point out and share interesting facts about our local wildlife as we go. With enough luck, we may chance upon species like the Oriental Whip Snake and the Flying Dragon!
