Join us to restore the mangrove habitat at Bang Pu Recreation Centre.
We will be taking on the tasks of litter picking and mangrove planting to help protect our coastline, for mangrove trees not only stabilise the land but also dissipate wave energy. After our hard work and a tasty sea view lunch we can enjoy the boardwalks and birdwatching tower.
Plan for the day:
8am: Meet at near Chatuchak Park MRT/Mo Chit BTS.
9:30 Arrive at Bang Pu.
09:45 Litter picking and removing the rubbish that washes ashore and gets stuck amongst the roots
10:45 Tea, Coffee and Snacks
11:00 Mangrove Planting. Mangrove seeds, propagules, are fascinating so we can discuss the amazing adaptations of the propagules too.
12:15 Lunch buffet by the sea -please indicate any dietary requirements on the form.
13:15 Free time to enjoy the boardwalk and watch for birds. We’ll provide binoculars.
14:45 Meet back at the van to head home.
16:15 Back to the BTS/MRT and enjoy the rest of your evening.
