GAMUDA PARKS (G-PARKS) RANGER PROGRAM KICKED OFF MONTHLY WORKSHOPS WITH ECOKNIGHTS & ME.REKA MAKERSPACE

23RD & 30TH March 2019, Kuala Lumpur – EcoKnights, supported by Gamuda Parks, continued their outreach program by organizing monthly workshops for the Junior Rangers under the Gamuda Parks (GParks) Ranger program. 
On the 23rd of March, EcoKnights facilitated the Kids Terrarium workshop for 32 enthusiastic Junior Rangers. The kids learned the importance of practicing small green habits such as planting succulents, which can impart a long-lasting positive impact to the environment. Meanwhile, on the 30th of March, 25 little rangers learned how to build their own wooden lamp with Me.reka Makerspace. The young crafters learned a thing or two about woodworking and electronics through the art of upcycling.

In line with the brown-themed awareness campaign by Gamuda Parks, the curious souls gained substantial knowledge on how to consume, utilize, reuse, upcycle and preserve the finite source materials of Earth. It is imperative that environmental education is nurtured at a young age and through these fun workshops, the young rangers are exposed to the notions of environmental protection and conservation.

To all parents out there, if you have small children between the age of 5 to 12 years, you may register them as GParks Ranger and be among the lucky ones to participate in these environment-themed workshops for free.
