Community to help plant 4 Nature Ways which will attract birds and butterflies

Singapore will have four more green corridors that will link up parks and nature reserves. 

The National Parks Board is involving the community to help grow these green links. 

Called 'Nature Ways', it's hoped they will encourage movement of birds and butterflies from one green area to another. 

It's the first of a slew of programmes to mark 50 years of greening in Singapore. 

This morning, National Development Minister Khaw Boon Wan took the lead by planting the bird-attracting native Nipis Kulit tree at the Kheam Hock Nature Way. 

It is one of four green corridors that will be created over the next two years. 

The other three are in Admiralty, Tampines and Yishun.
