Public Nature Walks

Welcome to Young Nautilus public programmes!

Come along on our programmes, where we explore our own coastal backyard in Singapore, and take a closer look at the amazing animals! So, wait no more, and get your children exposed to science and nature, or see in action what they have learnt in schools about wildlife!

Check out our schedule for both October to December 2018 below!

For January - March 2019 dates, please refer to the schedule below -

Facing trouble deciding which of our nature explorations suits you and your family better? Do look through the synopsis of the 6 locations/programmes below!

Changi Sandy Walk (Intertidal walk)

Join us for a hands-on unique experience with the marine intertidal animals of the Changi sandy shore! Aren’t you curious about how these animals adapt to survive the harsh intertidal environment and make the sandy shore their home? Get your feet wet and learn about hermit crabs, sea cucumbers, swimmer crabs, sand dollars and many other amazing animals in our own backyard!
*This programme is suitable for children 2 years old and above!

Sungei Buloh Mud Exploration (Mangrove walk)

Bring your family/friends to the Mangrove forest of Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserves, where they will get up close to the biodiversity of the animals and plants of the Mangrove ecosystem! You may get to see animals such as mudskippers, monitor lizards, tree climbing crabs, kingfishers, crocodiles and many more mangrove inhabitants! Note that you may get specks of mud on your feet!
*This programme is suitable for children 2 years old and above!

Coney Island Rustic Exploration (Nature / Intertidal Walk)

Have you visited our own Singapore’s Coney Island? This programme would be your choice should you like to visit terrestrial flora and fauna, such as changeable lizards, species of birds and insects, followed by a short Marine Intertidal Exploration! It may also be mind-blowing for your younger ones to know that the park is self-sustaining through the use of solar panels, and all signboards and seats in the island are actually recycled from the Island’s plants!
*This programme is recommended for children 6 years old and above!

Labrador Park Rocky Intertidal (Intertidal Walk)

Ever wondered what Labrador Nature Reserve could offer apart from the scenic coastline and lush greenery? You can descend the slippery boulders of Singapore’s LAST natural rocky shores to “forage” for signs of wildlife! Get amazed at the “Teddy bear” hairy crabs, hermit crabs, sea snails and even horseshoe crabs conducting their daily lives’ activities among the rocks and sand!
*This programme is recommended for children 6 years old and above!

Punggol Promenade Pebbly Patrol (Intertidal Walk)

Our Coney Island Rustic Exploration covers the amazing Casuarina Forest and the biodiversity on land, our Punggol Promenade Pebbly Patrol dives straight into the intertidal zone! Here we get to enjoy a more marine-centric adventure with the beautiful scenery of Coney Island! It is also here where we encountered the intriguing toadfish and other organisms like the snapping shrimps, sea sponge, Thunder Crab and sea stars!

Changi Grasspatch Treasure Hunt (Intertidal walk)

Are you ready for the challenge to look out for exhilarating treasures with us among the Grasspatch habitat! Although this area is near to our Changi Intertidal Walk, the biodiversity is vastly different. Hiding among the seagrass are animals like scorpion fish, seahorses, pipefishes, sea stars, flatworms, sea slugs and many more delicate marine lives!
