Sunday forest walk at Malad trail

April 8 @ 7:30 am - 11:30 am

Sunday forest walk at Malad trail
8th April , 2018 Sunday
Join Sunday Forest Walk with our naturalists at Malad Trail. The Summer is heating down and the increasing heat has prompted Karvanda bushes to ripen their unripe berries; wild jasmine climbers are profusely flowering and all local bird and animal life are in their breeding frenzy. The forest is increasingly turning pleasant for early morning walks and that’s exactly what we are going to do.
This trail runs along the western edge of the park and is dotted with varied vegetation beginning with dry-deciduous (Teak, Red Silk Cotton, Palash, Laburnum tree, Bamboo thickets, to name a few) and gradually gives way to evergreen growth. Gentle trail, ambles along to an artificial water hole. Walk along further and the conflict between forest and this ever-expanding city is strikingly apparent.
