MNS Open Day on Nov. 22 at FRIM

Research has shown time and time again that, if you want your children to learn to appreciate and care for the environment, there is no more powerful a learning tool than spending quality time with loved ones in the outdoors when they are young. For adults too, nature provides a respite from the business and routine of urban life. The following is a re-print from an email forwarded by Kenny Peavy to the Green Team regarding the Malaysian Nature Society Outdoor Day this coming Saturday. Please attend, bring your family and enjoy what nature has to offer!


Come and join us for an informal, family-oriented day of fun and activities in the beautiful green surroundings of FRIM. Use this occasion to meet and mingle with new and veteran members as well as non-members and their families. Bring your friends and loved ones. Share your infectious love of Nature with everybody.
