The Association of Kinneret Cities and the Kinneret Drainage and Rivers Authority invite the general public to become researchers for a day, on a cruise on the "Floating Laboratory - Eco Kinneret", a ship on which sampling and measuring equipment are installed, demonstrating the work of maritime researchers.

During the guided cruise, passengers get to take samples of soil and water from the Kinneret, operate laboratory equipment, and discover the water world and the ecology of the Kinneret. After the voyage, the research results will be processed at the 'Beit Yigal Alon' center.

At the end of the activity, you can stay for the various activities at "Beit Yigal Alon". The display of "The Floating Laboratory" will be open at "Beit Yigal Alon" between 11:00 - 15:00.

When: Sunday and Monday 9-10.4.2023 at 12:00 and 13:30.

Price: 30 NIS per person (uniform price for adults and children over the age of 3).

Registration: Through the website.
