Amran Amarni, Director of the Visitor, Training and Education Center, has been working with Gal Greenberg at the Ministry of Tourism to develop ethnographic and ecological tours for groups of all kinds. He had his first major chance to put what he has learned into action over three days in early October, when tourist groups and industry players from all over the country visited in a marathon ecotourism festival. We hope you’ll be as thrilled as we are to see young children enjoying all that the site has to offer, getting a feel for ecology and agriculture firsthand, and learning something about Bedouin life. The team also displayed and sold a range of products derived from the site’s organic agricultural ventures.
