Namma Bengaluru Foundation’s Lake Day Series

Namma Bengaluru Foundation’s Lake Day aims at raising awareness, increasing community participation and fostering an appreciation of lakes in Bangalore. It is scheduled to be held on the second Saturday of every month, each time at a different venue. 

“Bangalore has been blessed with a number of natural and human-made lakes. The water security of Bengaluru lies in us reconnecting with these lakes and safe guarding them” – Sridhar Pabisetty, CEO Namma Bengaluru Foundation

The first Lake Day will be at Kaikondrahalli Lake on Saturday, 10th Jan 2015. The event, “Kere Habba 2015” will be a sunrise to sunset event, where the organisers and supporters (MAPSAS, United Way Bengaluru, One Bengaluru for Lakes and Namma Bengaluru Foundation), will make an effort to connect with the lake, the neighbours and issues and ideas that are inspiring in the field of conservation. The nearly 2 km walkway of the lake will feature various stations where informative green workshops, story-telling sessions, bird walks, music that draws inspiration from nature, innovative experiment-based science activities, terrace gardening techniques, and the like will be showcased.

The February Lake Day is scheduled to take place at Puttenahalli Lake, JP Nagar 7th Phase on 14th Feb 2015 (tentative date, to be confirmed).

Look out for the detailed schedules.
