(Postponed) Gardens by the Bay Ambassadors Programme (GAP) 2020

June 4 @ 2:30 pm - 5:30 pm

GGS-GB Guides Interest badge

 

Dear Guide Guiders,

The GGS – GB Ambassador Programme has been running for the past few years and so far about 530 Guides have become ambassadors of the award-winning garden. We are glad to renew our partnership for another 5 years. Guides who have completed the programme discovered more about the vast variety of plants and acquired valuable knowledge on the sustainability efforts of the garden. In addition, they also gained experience by conducting garden tours as well as facilitating and delivering programmes amidst the beautiful setting. This is indeed a great learning opportunity for the Guides as they play an active role in one of Singapore’s popular tourist attractions.

From 2020 onwards, Guides who complete the Gardens by the Bay Ambassadors Programme will attain the Gardens by the Bay Interest Badge as well as the Naturalist Proficiency Badge (please refer to the attached document for the badge clauses).

Registration for the GGS – GB Ambassadors Programme 2020 is now opened.
