Working with the Southwest Community Development Council (SWCDC) One Million Tree Planting Programme, funded by Borneo Motors, and in collaboration with PUB and NParks, the Bird Group, Butterfly Interest Group and Plant Group of NSS have contributed ecological knowledge on indigenous plants that will support local bird and butterfly life in order to create new habitats along the Sungei Pandan corridor. It aims to create or expand existing patches of woodland, mangroves and riverine habitats and fill gaps to create a wildlife corridor along the river from the upper reaches at Ghim Moh to the lower reaches at Jalan Buroh. The various NSS Special Interest Groups have also made efforts to source or grow the necessary plans for planting and taken part in the physical planting activity as well as maintaining monitor surveys afterwards. These surveys will continue in future years so as to provide information for similar projects elsewhere in Singapore. The Sungei Pandan project was officially launched in terms of the planting activity on 8 January 2010 by Dr. Amy Khor, Mayor of the SWCDC.
