1) Volunteers are required to select a Home-base based on their activities preference. A list of Home-bases and the activities available there can be viewed from the hyperlink 'View Home-base Location' on the second page of registration, next to the drop-down list for Home-base Location.
(e.g. Volunteers interested in conservation activities should select Central Nature Reserve, Pulau Ubin or Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve as their Home-base).
2) Singapore Botanic Gardens is currently only accepting volunteers as Guides for the guided walks offered by the Gardens.
3) Volunteers from the Central Nature Reserve, Pulau Ubin, Singapore Botanic Gardens and Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve will be required to attend an orientation before their volunteering hours are logged. However, they are welcome to sign up for activities and events on a trial basis by contacting the officer-in-charge of the events.
4) Hours from orientation, training and trial activities/events will not be logged as volunteering hours.
