Volunteers required for Kota Damansara Community Forest to build a Trail on 2 November 2008

The Trail Association of Kuala Lumpur & Selangor better known as TRAKS ( who are helping the Friends of Kota Damansara Community Forest ("KDCF") in creating a trail network there.

They are seeking for volunteers and our district have raised our hands on behalf of our Kelana boys. The tentative date for the trail building is Sunday November 2nd, 0800 to 1200 hours. Please let me know if you can participate with this special project.

This is an opportunity for the scouts to learn about sustainable community forest use and more importantly, they will be part of the "making" of KDCF which I hope in turn will help them appreciate the need to care and maintain our forest when they become "users" of the forest. It is easy to camp on established site but not so in creating one. So this way they will learn about how much others put in for the rest of us to enjoy nature and thus for them to use the forest wisely and leave as they had found them.
We are looking for about 10 - 20 volunteers for this project, please contact me directly if you are keen.

Kenneth Soh, Pesuruhjaya Pengakap Daerah Bukit Bintang
