About Bukit Persekutuan
The Malaysian Nature Society (MNS) kicked off the Urban Community Forest initiative to continue protecting one of Kuala Lumpur’s remaining green lungs by getting relevant communities and stakeholders in on the action. UCF seeks to protect Bukit Persekutuan, or Federal Hill, from being exploited for development and prevent its low-density, institutional status from being irrevocable changed. To start, the nature trail just off the MNS HQ has been improved, while a nursery has been up and running for several years, and these can help city dwellers get some muchneeded nature R&R right in the heart of the city. The secondary forest is currently worked on by volunteers in cleaning up of trash over the past 2 years in an effort to make this place more comfortable to walk-in.
