Tree Appreciation Walk in SGNP, Borivali Mumbai: The Good news is....Monsoon has revived itself......a relief to all of us. To celebrate its revival, we have decided to give a miss to man made beautiful gardens of our city and take a Walk In The Woods.....a Tree Appreciation Walk in Sanjay Gandhi National Park, Borivali on 29th July morning on Silonda Trail. Forest floor is full of its magic........Gulvel, Ghot vel, Nolvel, Kantola, Anantmol, all are clamoring to climb up on the trees of Shisham, Chironji, Haldu, Kusum, Borsal and many more. If we are lucky we may get to see the herds of grazing deer, chirping birds dashing all over the trees canopy and beautiful butterflies. We invite you all to join us for the Walk......
The 29th walk is on Sunday 29thJuly, 2012
Venue: Sanjay Gandhi National Park, Borivali
Time: 7.30
Duration of walk: 2 hours
Meeting Point: SGNP’s gate near the ticket window.
Most Important: Silonda Trail is a restricted area and we have taken permission to conduct the walk there. It is about 1 km inside the park from the main gate.

Very Important : Please Don’t be late, specially who are coming for the 1st time for the trail in the park & not familiar with the area....there will be other groups also for their walks and it will be very difficult to locate us once we leave for Silonda.
