For the past year, our team of 31 volunteers have gone through training sessions to hone their guiding skills. The BES Drongos have successfully held 13 public trails, with 116 visitors coming on our walks!

With the fresh start of a new academic year, our seniors have graduated and now the time has come for us to expand our flock and train some more new fledglings to guide with BES Drongos.

The BES Drongos are a group of nature lovers keen to passing our ever-burning passion on to the general public. We bring members of the public on guided trails in the Central Catchment Nature Reserve to educate them about the value of the ecosystems and residing biodiversity they host.

A nature lover

Keen to interact with the public
