Love Gone Wild at Pulau Ubin!

Love was in the air last Saturday at Pulau Ubin!

On 14 February 2015, the outreach and education team of the Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum brought some couples and friends out for an exclusive romance-themed exploration of Pulau Ubin. For this Valentine’s Day special, participants explored the Sensory Trail with our guides, where they had a chance to observe, touch, taste, and smell some of the herbs, spices, and food plants, and learn about some cheeky facts associated with the very same! Some lucky ducks even spotted a hornbill!

Participants learnt about local flora and fauna in the secondary forest and mangrove, where they also took part in a romance-themed scavenger hunt! The winning duo walked away with an exclusive prize. It was a day well spent romancing nature (and each other!) amidst the rustic charms of Pulau Ubin.

Even as we prepare for the new museum’s opening, our programmes are still ongoing. Do keep a lookout for public programmes on the museum blogwebsite and Facebook page!
