Since 2007, JABALNA festival was introduced on a yearly basis to promote awareness of different Lebanese environmental issues. In previous years, JABALNA festival was held ONLY in Maasser El Chouf Village. This year, in partnership with the Ministry of Environment, JABALNA will be travelling all around Lebanon through many prestigious festivals to promote the wild birds of Lebanon. “HAPPY BIRDAY” is a joyful event to create a friendly interactive relation between the visitors and the birds. It will offer you the opportunity to learn about wild and migration birds and how to preserve our National birds heritage for future generations.
