Weekend guided tour of lake

With the installation of benches (and dustbins) at our neighbourhood Puttenahalli Lake, the number of people frequenting it has gone up considerably! Most of them are from Puttenahalli, RBI Layout, Bank of Baroda Colony, etc.

This is an invitation to all residents of South City and Brigade Millennium to a guided tour of the lake on Saturday and Sunday (27th-28th Aug 2011) from 9 a.m to 10 a.m. We will show you the different varieties of trees we have planted, the water birds and the many seemingly small but integral things that we do to revive and transform the lake.

It is after all, the last surviving lake in the neighbourhood and our only hope to replenish the water table in this area! Other residents of the area and all photography enthusiasts are welcome to join us as well.

FYI, the lake is located between South City and Brigade Millennium. To enter from SC side, go past the sub-station and out of the compound. To enter from BM, go out of the arch near MLR Convention Hall. From both SC and BM, the lake is immediately to your right.

Weekend volunteers, please take a break from gardening and join us. Your enthusiasm and participation over the past several weeks have been such a source of strength to us! May your tribe increase!
