Ahead of International Earth Day, KKL-JNF invites the public to take part in protecting the environment by removing garbage from forests and parks. It is also offering a new forest navigation game that participants can access by downloading a special app. These activities will take place April 19 -21, 2021.
How does it work?
Didn’t Clean Up? You’ve Littered! Ahead of International Earth Day, KKL-JNF is inviting the public to take part in protecting the environment by cleaning up Israel’s forests and parks.
Everyone is invited! Do your part in caring for the environment by clearing a path or recreation area in a KKL-JNF forest of garbage that other left behind. This waste causes damage to these natural spaces and the wildlife there.
While you are doing this why not join us in a navigation game by downloading 'HavaYaar'
a surprisingly fun and adventurous mobile escape game that also provides an enriching lesson on the importance of keeping the forests clean. The game is open to the public all days of the week.
The activity is for individuals or volunteer groups from specific organizations or schools.
Activities for the general public
All activities are open to the public free of charge. There is no need to register in advance. Below are more details about the various activities.
In addition to the cleaning campaign, during the week of April 18 and 23 a forest navigation game can be downloading through the 'HavaYaar' app at any time in the following forests:
Hof Carmel Forest, Birya Forest.
Britannia Park, Aminadav Forest, Ben Shemen Forest.
Ha’Malachim (Angels) Forest, Shokeda Forest.
