Tree Appreciation Walks at SGNP, Mumbai- 29 th;
Tree Appreciation Walk in SGNP, Borivali Mumbai: The Good news is….Monsoon has revived itself……a relief to all of us. To celebrate its revival, we have decided to give a miss to man made beautiful gardens of our city and take a Walk In The Woods…..a Tree Appreciation Walk in Sanjay Gandhi National Park, Borivali on 29th July morning on Silonda Trail. Forest floor is full of its magic……..Gulvel, Ghot vel, Nolvel, Kantola, Anantmol, all are clamoring to climb up on the trees of Shisham, Chironji, Haldu, Kusum, Borsal and many more. If we are lucky we may get to see the herds of grazing deer, chirping birds dashing all over the trees canopy and beautiful butterflies. We invite you all to join us for the Walk……
The 29th walk is on Sunday 29thJuly, 2012
Venue: Sanjay Gandhi National Park, Borivali
