Heritage Fest 2004

Category : toddycats

As part of activities lined up for Heritage Fest 2004, National Archives of Singapore and the Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research jointly presented the Pasir Panjang Heritage Trail on the 17th, 18th and the 25th of July 2004.

Despite a very wet fortnight, we were lucky with the weather and beneath sunny skies, Raffles Museum volunteer guides (Toddycats) and students from SAJC's Green Club introduced the public to the flora and fauna of the ridge, from the high ground provided an insight into life of the 1960's and introduced some of the Southern Islands, and related core elements of the Battle of Pasir Panjang using the markers provided by tall buildings in the distance.

The walk, a shorter version of an annual series begun in 2002, began in Kent Ridge Park, and used the new canopy walk to reach Reflections at Bukit Chandu. The guides, trained earlier in the month, received glowing reviews. In addition to the stories, various groups were treated to sights of flowering Tembusus, Chinese Laughing Thrush, Crested Green Lizard, a Flying Dragon, Plantain Squirrels, Monitor Lizards, cicada moults, and a praying mantis attacked by a Changeable Lizard and an emerald Green Whipsnake!
