Let's Go! Young Eco-Explorers! is a series of nature lessons comprising an outdoor lesson and an indoor lesson (in preparation for the outdoor lesson). Joining a Young Eco-Explorers learning programme will provide your kids with a headstart in learning how to experience the outdoors, in developing observational skills, and in getting to know our forests, mangroves and freshwater wetlands at an early age. Our programme is also designed to encourage kids to learn how to work in a team as well as independently.

Choose from any of the following outdoor locations:
  1. Bukit Timah Nature Reserve
  2. Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve
  3. MacRitchie Reservoir & Trails
  4. Lower Peirce Reservoir Park

Cost:
We are able to offer this programme at a reduced rate due to a grant from a well-wisher.
Cost of each lesson is $200 for a maximum of 20 kids. Original cost of each lesson was $300.
