Mangrove Guided Walk

Led by our experienced guides, this guided walk allows you to get up and close with the local residents of the mangroves while walking on the boardwalk. Keep your eyes peeled for Grey Herons taking flight, Giant Mudskippers trying to blend in with the environment, or Vinegar Crabs climbing up trees. Learn about the different root systems of the hardy mangrove trees in the mangrove forest at Pasir Ris Park, one of the last few mangrove forests in Singapore.
