The Modiin Experience nature hikes return to the city for the fourth year. The Modiin Experience is a collaboration between Iriyat Modiin Maccabim Reut and the Modiin branch of the Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel (SPNI). The hikes will take place on Saturday or Thursday beginning at the end of the month and continue through December 2019. The Saturday hikes will take place in the morning between 10:00 and 12:00 and the Thursday hikes will take place in the evening between 19:30 and 21:30.
The hikes will take place at different nature sites around the city including Nahal Anabe, the southern hills, Titora, Brafilla, Givat Sher and others where residents will learn about the history of the site and will hear from the SPNI guides about the flora and fauna in these sites. In previous years, hundreds of hikers of all ages have enjoyed participating in the nature hikes. It is recommended to wear closed shoes, a hat and bring water.
The first hike will take place on Saturday, February 23 in the Brafilla Hills, just before spring with the hills full of flowers.
