Set in Israel’s stunningly beautiful most untouched nature, the SPNI Field Schools are a nature-lover’s dream destination. SPNI Field Schools provide rustic to basic accommodation, kosher dining, and educational hiking and walking tours. Rooms must be reserved in advance. Families and young people from all over Israel and abroad come for our famous guided tours, and the pleasure of staying in some of the best spots nature has to offer. Entire classes come for nature education that is unmatched in Israel.
SPNI’s Field School system combines three main areas of activity:
education – teaching youth and adults about the region;
conservation – protecting the region’s natural environment;
research – gathering information about the region in conjunction with SPNI’s various departments.
Field Schools are an integral part of SPNI’s operations and a focal point for local eco-activities. They play a leading role in Israeli environmental tourism and education.

"The food was very good, and there was plenty for vegetarians as well. All the staff were friendly, reasonable and reliable. The views from the field school were spectacular and the ibex and hyrax all over the grounds were charming as well."
"The Eilat field school is a simple place for friends of nature, but it offers everything one needs to feel accommodated in a very pleasant way. Most of all, it is run by the loveliest people one can wish for!"
“We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the hospitality, the quality of the food, the amazing service in the dining room, the clean and tidy rooms, and most of all, thanks to Daniel Berkowitz, the director of Mount Meron Field School, who took it upon himself to host about 80 people and never stopped visiting, cheering, and making sure everything was in perfect order!"
We advance environmental priorities across all spheres — influencing planning processes for developments, galvanizing citizens to take action, and creating green initiatives around Israel.
