16 Jun (Sat): Chek Jawa Nature Photographic Outing with the Nature Photographic Society (Singapore)

Located at the northeast coast of Pulau Ubin, Chek Jawa is no doubt one of the best intertidal sites in Singapore for nature appreciation and biodiversity conservation.
With its special location and interesting foreground/background, Sunrise at Chek Jawa will also be an unusual experience for most nature photographers in Singapore. To support the ongoing Pesta Ubin 2018 event, Nature Photographic Society (Singapore) (NPSS) is organizing a nature photographic outing to Chek Jawa.

Due to the sensitivity of the habitats, the event is restricted to 12 participants.

Time: 5am - 11am
Meeting Place: Changi Point Ferry Terminal
