We Walk to Protect Our Mountains!
Every year we highlight a special theme. In 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016, we walked for Water Conservation, Birds, Trail Protection, Cultural and Archaeological Heritage, and for Food Heritage respectively. This year, hikers are walking for the Mountains.
Lebanonís mountains are more than ever endangered by the unplanned development. Only 20% (approximately) of the LMT is protected. This is where the trail transects protected areas and nature reserves. The remaining parts of the trail are threatened on daily basis by many environmental violations menacing the trailís existence and the trailside heritage and resource, and above all the shared space for healthy and fresh air, serenity and recreation.
This year, we are raising the attention, again and out loud, and through our programs and activities, to the importance of taking care of our mountains.
