My volunteer trip!

Last day!

on January 10, 2012

1/9/12
Today we traveled to the carmel forest in the north near Haifa, to learn about the devastating fire that happened last year. To prevent future forest fires, we cleared out an area of trees that had been previously cut down. Afterwards we went to see the part of the forest where the fire happened and it was devastating to see the burnt trees and barren land. After lunch we headed to Dor beach and volunteered for a program called Clean Beach. We picked up trash all along the beach in the rain. Before we came it was disgusting, but we could tell that we had made a difference as we left. We all got together for a closing discussion as a group and ended with dinner at a nice restaurant on the beach. As Maya and I said goodbye to our new friends, we began our journey on our own for the week visiting our friends all over Israel.
