Schoolchildren and adults from Migdal HaEmek recently took part in a day of fun activities at the forest near their home town. KKL-JNF's Northern Region, the Community & Forest Unit and the Education Division all collaborated on the project, designed to bring local residents into the forest and so encourage them to participate in its conservation and care.
Working alongside KKL-JNF foresters under the direction of Shali Ben Yishai, who cleared away the large quantities of debris that had accumulated in the area, local volunteers and pupils from Nofim Elementary School created a new cyclamen trail through the woods at the activities site and then participated in activities that focused on KKL-JNF and environmental conservation, led by Inbar and Ron, volunteers doing a year's public service at KKL-JNF.
The idea is that closer acquaintance with the forest will encourage the children to volunteer and to become members of the "forest faithful."
