Guides of Singapore Shores

The "Guides of Singapore Shores" is a weekly series of workshops held over 5 Thursday evenings beginning in July, organised in collaboration between the Blue Water Volunteers (BWV), The Leafmonkey Workshop and WildSingapore with Supporting Partner, The Singapore Scout Association.

8 July 2010 (Thur): Introduction to Intertidal Guiding*
15 July 2010 (Thur): Reefs and Coral Rubble
22 July 2010 (Thur): Rocky Shore and Coastal Forest
29 July 2010 (Thur): Sandy Shore and Seagrass Meadow
5 August 2010 (Thur): Mangrove animals and plants
* Compulsory Module: You will gain most by attending "Introduction to intertidal guiding", which is thus compulsory.

The workshops will be held at 7pm - 10pm, at The Singapore Scout Association Headquarters, 1 Bishan Street 12 [map]. Registration at 6.45pm.

Each workshop sessions will comprise a one-hour lecture, followed by a two-hour workshop. The workshop is where you will brainstorm guiding techniques, sharing and learning with one another. Participants are encouraged to attend the full 3-hour session to gain the most out of each workshop.

At the end of the series of indoors classroom workshops, a field evaluation session will be conducted on 14 August 2010 (Sat) to give participants a chance to put theory into practise. Workshop trainers and fellow participants will provide individualised feedback to participants at the end of the field session.

To minimise impact on the shore, the number of participants in the field evaluation session will be limited and priority will be given to those who attended at least 75% of the programme including "Introduction to intertidal guiding".

This series of workshops is tailored to benefit existing nature guides and those interested to become shore guides. If you are an experienced shore guide, please join us so that the rest can learn from you. The bulk of the time is allocated to a workshop, where everyone can share, learn and DO!
