Eco-tourism - Tour Israel and be a Forester for a Day

22 November, 201122 November, 2011 0 comments Nature Nature

You can now Bless Israel by helping it stay green  during your next visitl.


Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael-Jewish National Fund is offering groups of 15 or more the opportunity to participate in a new "Forester for Day" program. The new ecological initiative engages visitors in a full day's activities focusing on Israel's forests, guaranteeing a greener tomorrow for Israel.


The program also educates people about protecting the forests including keeping the area safe from fires. In 2010, the Carmel Mountains suffered a devastating forest fire that cost tens of thousands of dunams of forests as well as communities.


The new program runs for 2-3 hours and is available Sunday-Thursday 8 am - 3pm and Friday 8 - noon. Program participants will have the opportunity to work side-by-side in groups with KKL-JNF foresters to clear underbrush, prune trees, prepare fire breaks and forest paths in the Carmel Region forests.


The forester for a day program is available for groups of 15 - 150 and is offered with advance planning in English, French, German and Spanish. The cost is $18 per person. Upon completion, each participant receives a KKL-JNF hat, pin and certificate of appreciation.


Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael - Jewish National Fund is leading the quest for a more environmental Israel: open spaces, forests, recreation areas and appreciation for Israel's natural and cultural heritage. KKL- JNF's work in Israel is concentrated in six action areas that include water, forestry and environment, education, community development and security, tourism and recreation, research and development.
