      Sungei Buloh Nature Park Talk of the month for February
      (First Saturday of the month)

      "Encounters with places and plants"  by Ali Ibrahim

      Saturday, 17th February 2001: 3pm to 4pm
      at the Theatrette, Visitor Centre, Sungei Buloh Nature Park

      From the rare Rafflesia to the giant Redwood, plants are always
      fascinating to look at. Often as you encounter plants or gain some
      kind of knowledge about them, you are compelled to read or travel
      to places far and remote to unravel their special beauty.

      Ali Ibrahim, Conservation Officer of Sungei Buloh shares his
      encounters with wonderful plants.

      All are welcome. Normal park entrance fees apply.

      Ali has wide experience, is a good speaker and has great slides
      [Sivasothi].
