Heard the saying “Stop and smell the roses”? This reminder to take a break and enjoy the beauty of what’s around us hints at how being with nature refreshes us – simply because of biophilia.


In Singapore, we have ample opportunities to connect with nature. On the way to work or school, we can spot flowering shrubs, or hear birds singing along our roads. How about contributing to our City in Nature, by growing plants in your home or in an allotment plot?


Nature also serves as a great inspiration to us. Did you know that mangrove trees, which are specially adapted to the coastal environment, prevent coastal erosion and help to mitigate climate change? We can do well to take a leaf from them, and learn from their spirit of resilience.


Our native mangrove trees and other plants and animals each play important roles in our City in Nature. How about learning more about them, as well as how to better care for our companion animals? Find out at our NParks Buzz microsite, and through our NParksSG YouTube channel or our TikTok channel! To learn as a family and have fun together, check out our list of cool activities to do at home.
