[back] FRIM NATURE TRAIL ... Sara Lew - 18 June 2008


Dear Members,

We're pleased to inform that we have made arrangement with FRIM (Forest Research Institute Malaysia to conduct a "nature trail" for our members at its Kepong Botanical Garden.

The 80ha garden located next to the FRIM has incorporated a 400 m wheelchair-friendly cemented pathway called the Razak Walk to cater to the needs of the disabled community. There's also a wheelchair-friendly toilet located at the start of the trail.

Mr. Elango Valautham, Research Officer from FRIM will lead our group and provide public education on the flora and fauna in its ground. He's advised that the best way to enjoy the place is to do the nature trail on a small group basis, the maximum being 20 persons per group. As such, we have decided to organize this nature trial on a regular basis if the response is good.
