Friends of Nature Awakened from the Tragedy


It took time for the Friends of Nature to stand back on its feet. And we did. 

We have resumed our role with the same strength, zeal, perseverance and insight to continue the mission of the founders at guiding the society to a better future.


FON restructuring

The Friends of Nature reconstructed its teams joining hand with an elaborate scientific team, an extensive group of partners and collaborators, and a youthful group of volunteers.
New premises were acquired that serve the objectives and mission of FON, situated in a nature zone associated with a very important and unique cultural entity – Modern And Contemporary Art Museum  MACAM, in Alita, Qartaba road, Jbeil.



New premises were acquired that serve the objectives and mission of FON. The premises are situated on one of the most important natural and cultural sites in Lebanon; it overlooks the iconic Adonis valley, which provides a vantage point to assist in promoting and executing our activities in an ecologically and environmentally meaningful natural surrounding.
The premises is offered by one of Lebanon’s most important and unique cultural entities and museums MACAM – Modern And Contemporary Art Museum, which host an exceptional permanent exhibition of unique sculptures of Lebanese artists. MACAM is a cultural art hub that has attracted over 5000 visitors.
We have a conference room to host workshops and facilities to provide the food services, in addition to the outstanding outdoor expanse for activities.
We are highly proud and thankful of our collaboration and partnership with MACAM.

Human Resources

FON is supported by a talented qualified team of university graduates.
A team of 9 trained trainers implement our permanent program : Children and Nature 
A team of 3 trainers implement our permanent hiking program : Shepherds Routes
Our team enlarges depending on the projects in execution tapping on qualitative candidates from university graduates.

Social Visibility

FON has acquired appreciated acknowledgement at grassroots level through its accomplishments and activities over the decades. We are well connected  with a broad spectrum of stakeholders and local communities through our projects. We have strong relationships with many local authorities as municipalities and unions of municipalities. We equally collaborate with central authorities, especially the ministry of environment.


FON designs and implements projects in line with its mission and vision. Our projects present prototypes resolving intricate problems of integral ecological concerns addressing national significance under measures of community-based sustainable development.
