Forester For a Day

 
KKL-JNF's "Forester for a day" program, a new ecological initiative, offers visitors a unique opportunity to assist KKL-JNF in helping to maintain our forests, prevent forest fires and guarantee a greener tomorrow for Israel.
 

 
A meaningful highlight of any visit, vacation, or family celebration
 
Groups participating in the "Forester for a Day" program work side-by-side with KKL-JNF foresters to clear underbrush, prune trees, prepare fire breaks and forest paths in the Ben Shemen, Carmel, Birya or Lahav forests. The program runs 2-3 hours in its entirety and work is done under the supervision of foresters and KKL-JNF guides. Upon completion, each participant receives a KKL-JNF hat, pin and a certificate of appreciation.
