Nizhal is organizing a set of tree walks once again.  Do come and enjoy the colours of summer.

Learn about trees that are indigenous to our city and take a little time to say thank you to these voiceless sentinels of our health and well-being!

The walks will start on time, so please arrive early.  Given the temperatures, please do wear a hat and carry drinking water.  Do wear comfortable shoes to enjoy the walk.  They will last for approximately an hour.

 

The first of our Chitirai walks is at Panagal Park, T Nagar.

Date - April 20 (Sunday)
Venue - Panagal Park
Time - 7.00 am to 8.00 am

People have known Panagal park only as a shopping paradise, but now feast your eyes on some rare, lush, green and beautiful trees that are as mind blowing as the shops around them!

 

The next one is at Babu Street, Chitlapakkam.

Date - April 20 (Sunday)
Venue - Babu Street, Chitlapakkam
Time - 4.00 to 5.00 pm

in one of the residential neighborhood, which has rare trees like PuthranJeeva.

The idea is to promote awareness and awaken the local residents and residential welfare association against tree abuse in all forms happening in suburbs and telling how to protect trees from various road-side abuses.

 

The final one is at the Kotturpuram Tree Park.

Date - April 27 (Sunday)
Venue - Kotturpuram Tree Park
Time - 5.00 to 6.00 pm

This is a special tree walk lead by Mr "Poochi Venkat" who is a renowned insect photographer. He will take us to the fascinating world of "creepies and crawlies" found in Kotturpuram Tree park.
