"Celebrating Wildlife” - An Investigative Biodiversity Workshop Series:
Come and learn fascinating facts about plants and wildlife that make our gardens, parks and forests their home! This half-day workshop provides children with the opportunity to get up-close-and-personal with both living and preserved specimens, participate in fun-filled, hands-on activities and go on guided walks to seek out wildlife in the Gardens. This “Celebrating Wildlife” Series is jointly organised by Singapore Botanic Gardens and Cicada Tree EcoPlace.
Our Wild Isle - Weird & Wonderful Plants
(An Investigative Biodiversity Workshop)
Some plants have strange qualities, like pitcher plants, which digest insects. Others, known as Ant Plants, encourage ants to protect them from other insects. Other plants chase bugs away by the smell they give off, like Citronella, which makes a good herbal insect repellent. Some plants have sweet leaves or shoots which may be eaten, while others are poisonous and cannot be eaten. Participants will learn about our weird and wonderful native wild plants through a slide-talk and hands-on study of both live and preserved plant specimens. At the end of the workshop, participants will bring home with them their creative art piece as well as a potted plant.
