A series of FREE public guided walks at MacRitchie Forest. Join the NUS Toddycats, volunteers of the Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum in discovering the forest! Learn about amazing plants and animals living in our backyard as part of the Love Our MacRitchie Forest movement. Map of Venus Loop - http://tinyurl.com/map-venusloop The MacRitchie Forest Trail at Venus Drive meanders along the banks of a crystal-clear forest stream that is full of freshwater life. Here live dragons and damsels, freshwater crabs and prawns, the Puff-faced Watersnake, Pygmy Halfbeak and Saddle Barb. Look out, too, for the Green Crested Lizard, Red-bellied Squirrel, Long-tailed Macaque, Blue-rumped Parrot and Colugo. Walk in the cool shade of old trees. Feel a kind of natural peace that only a rainforest can give. The trail here is a dirt path which is relatively level and suitable for children and the elderly. Be prepared for some mud. Come with us, and learn more about this rainforest. Feel our natural heritage at risk.
