The fishponds, restored wetlands and fields of the Beit Shean Valley are an oasis for a wide variety of bird life. Storks and birds of prey funnel up from the Dead Sea and the Jordan Valley into the area and come down in search of food and rest. This area is rich with different habitats each attracting a wide variety of birds. We will spend the day exploring the area around Kibbutz Kfar Rupin in search of all these fantastic birds. No experience is necessary!

insects before the end of the day.

See the future of conservation coming to life at the rewilded wetlands of the Carmel coast.
