On Sunday, May 14th, 2023 – we are organising a nature walk + plastic cleanup activity in a forested park in Lado Sarai – which is filled with a wildlife (Jackals, Porcupines, Neelgai, Peacocks, various birds etc) – as well as historical monuments ( a gigantic wall of a fort that was built between 7th century and 12th century ) as well as a rock climbing site.
The area in question is over 110 acres — and so, larger than Buddha Jayanti Park (85 acres) and larger than Nehru Park (95 acres) and also larger than several other notable parks of Delhi
We will gather around 7:45 AM – and try to start between 7:45 and 8:00 AM — and end the walk by 9:30 or latest 10:00 AM.
Meeting place is Indian Garden Park, MB Road – gates at MB Road and Gate near Saket Metro Station Parking Lot (on Westend Marg)
Interested folks can send a message “lado sarai nature walk” to 98111-09407 (mobile number of Nalin Savara) – and I will send them the details including the start time; where we will meet and things to bring etc—
and if you have any questions— feel welcome to also phone on 98111-09407 and ask me or drop a message to ask.
The walk is free – and we request you all to bring your own (non disposable) water-bottle — and maybe a sturdy walking stick (incase there are monkeys to scare them)
[0:17 am, 12/05/2023] Nalin Savara: Interested folks can send a message “lado sarai nature walk” to 98111-09407 (mobile number of Nalin Savara) – or just send a private reply to this msg and I will send them the details
The main purpose of the walk will be nature awareness and to introduce people to the forest – rather than any specifically focussed cleanup activity- but we will also carry some sacks with us – so that if we see some plastic waste etc – we can collect it, even though as mentioned cleanup is not the main purpose.
