Our non profit organisation Tannourine Cedar society (Tannour w Nour) was established in 2014 to protect one of the largest cedar forest in Lebanon. The organisation is fully supportive for the engagement of the local community in the process of conservation and to raise awareness about environmental issues through education programs for the local community and the reserve's visitors.
