KKL-JNF Field and Forest Education Centers: Green Learning

KKL-JNF Field and Forest Education Centers are situated in forests up in the green hills. FFEC's  welcome visitors to an educational experience that combines environmental values alongside Zionism and love for the land of Israel. 

What are Field and Forest Education Centers?


The Field and Forest Education Centers are comprised of spacious tents and wood cabins that are spread out between the trees of the forest. In each tent there are eight beds, and in the cabins there are four to five beds, as well as a shower, refrigerator, private bathroom and air conditioning.

The centers are guarded, have security fences, and are equipped with outdoor and indoor classrooms, sports facilities and picnic areas shaded by the trees in the forest, all of which provides experiential learning experiences as well as outdoor activities. The centers also serve as a suitable base for excursions and overnight camping.
A professional staff of experienced guides service the guests at the Field and Forest Education Centers and conducts educational activities and tours in the vicinity.

The Field and Forest Education Centers offer their visitors tours, educational programs and a variety of interactive activities that emphasize national, natural, environmental and historical values, in a unique and enjoyable style.
 
Come to breathe in the fresh forest air, take a  walk in the fields and enjoy pleasant hospitality and a productive learning experience.
