Saturday morning at Bishan-Ang Mo Kio park

As usual, we get our hands busy and feet wet.  9 of us gathered at Kallang-Ang Mo Kio park on a Saturday morning!  We got our hands busy by removing the Wild Tamarind trees (Leucaena leucocephala) near the waterways.  Wild Tamarind trees are considered a invasive species and a weed.  Best way to prevent them from growing is to removing them when they are young.

Cheerful Jia Le was busy with his parents sieving the apple snails (Pomacea species).  It is also another invasive species that commonly seen in our waterways.

Thanks to all who came forward to help at the park!
