Sumana Harish says…” I have been coming to Lalbagh since when i was a kidand never seen it in this perspective before……Thanks a lot for the experience. Also I didn’t know these many birds existed here.”


Hiten Balsari says..” Interesting tidbits of information. Perhaps more such walks should be organised in Bangalore. A Birdwatching tour would be ideal but with a smaller group size.”


Dr Shobhana Iyer says…” Simply superb!! Thanks for organising such a wonderful walk. The amount of info gathered could not be matched by numerous hours of reading…….Thanks a ton for helping us appreciate the wonder called Lalbagh. Looking forward to more such walks.”

    thank you so much for a phenomenal experience. Information shared, not in a “teaching biology /preaching conservation” way, but through gentle dialogues. . .
    Fun for all participants and learning – regardless if first time in lalbaugh or thousanth!
    Great pictures too 🙂

    The Nature Walk was a nice concept. I got to know more about Lal Bagh, got to take so many pictures. I exhausted two rolls long before the conclusion of the walk. The piece de resistance was the Naga Champa tree. I never paid much attention to trees but not any more. A lot of the name plates on the trees at Lal Bagh have got rusted/worn out. These need to be fixed. Maybe we can have another walk where participants can help with the labelling of the many amazing varieties of trees.
    Thanks to the organisers!
