LTER-EDU the Long-Term Ecological Monitoring Program – the Annual Conference
On the 1/6/15 and 2/6/15 two conferences to conclude the last year of the LTER-EDU monitoring program took place under the direction of Dr. Yael Navon. During the conference the students participated in activities to familiarize themselves with the Memorial Garden and later on gathered to hear professional lectures and diverse and creative presentations of the monitoring results.
The lectures were given by:
Liat Hadar, the director of research at Ramat Hanadiv, on the topic: “Gathering and sharing ecological data in the cloud era”; and
Amir Arnon, responsible for wild animals at Ramat Hanadiv, on the topic: “Monitoring wild animals in a nature park”.
This year, as in previous years, high levels of investment, creativity, knowledge, beautiful results and assimilation of the learning process the children experienced during the year were strongly evident.
An especially touching presentation was prepared by Naomi Yaron from the Hof HaCarmel Comp School, in memory of Yehudit Ayalon – a botanist, researcher and wonderful teacher who educated generations of students to love and become intimately familiar with nature.
We had the merit to work with her in our monitoring program from its beginning until this year. Click here for the link to the presentation

Have a pleasant vacation and we’ll see you in the next monitoring year.
