20 classic mini cars dotted the carpark at the Sungei Buloh Nature Park! The occasion? Timberland's Earth Day celebration the Park. As reported in Berita Harian, 20 April 1997 was indeed a fine Sunday for at least 40 children who were waltzed to the Park in a convoy of 20 classic mini cars.
The day started on a high note with the children from Bukit Ho Swee Social Centre and Toa Payoh CDAC being introduced to the Park by our staff. The children were taken around Route 1 where they were greet by some of our feathered friends who were probably on their last flight back home. They also learnt about the different habitats that are found in the Park. This event was jointly organised by Timberland and Sungei Buloh Nature Park to educate the children, aged 8 to 10, on the importance of conserving our natural heritage.
What better way to expose our young to nature than to let them have a feel of it first hand. From 21 March to 22 April 1997, the public was encouraged to make their contributions towards nature conservation by dropping their loose change into pledge boxes located at Timberland stores. Proceeds from the sale of the exclusive Timberland caps were also donated to the Park. The funds collected from this event will be channelled towards the Park's conservation education efforts.
We thank Timberland and the public for their support.
