NParks organises "Biodiversity Week for Schools" annually as a lead up to the International Day of Biological Diversity. Pre-schools under ECDA were invited to participate in the "Playtime Series" activity, which is a self-run art workshop to raise awareness
of our natural heritage. This workshop is suitable for K1 and K2 children. Through this activity, the children can learn about the greening efforts and wildlife in Singapore.
