Lesson Plan 2/2

The 2nd component of the Young Naturalist Programme sees participants exploring the Chencharu stream right next to Cyan.

We've painstakingly done up brick steps at the entry point and it very much is a throwback to the kampung days.

Here, participants will get up-close with freshwater flora and fauna. Identifying the birds and the bees as well as pick up nuggets of freshwater ecology along the way.
