Maurice Klein speaks with L’Chaim – To Life radio tour guide Effi Yaacobi, who after commenting about Christian support for Israel and the Australian Christian support for Israel, takes us to the Ein Afek Nature Reserve in the Acre Valley within the Zvulun Valley. It covers the swamps and springs at the source of the Na'aman River, as well as the Tel Afek  archaeological site. The origin of the name is the biblical city of Afek.  The highlights of the park include the Crusader fortress and the natural water canals and lake, which draw their waters from the year-long flowing springs of Afek, which are the source of the Na'aman River. The Ein Afek Nature Reserve preserves swampland and waterway sources the majority of which have been lost in Israel. Along the swamp pathway in the Reserve, visitors 'float’ over swamp surrounded by rich riverbank vegetation and colourful waterbirds and flora and fauna. Visitors can walk across the picturesque bodies of water on floating wooden walkways and follow the Swamp Pathway. This is a unique experience when you are virtually walking on water. Other attractions in the park include the ancient two-story flour mill. The foundations of the mill were built by the ancient Romans and the rest of the structure dates back to the Crusaders.  To contact Effi you can email him at efyaac@netvision.net.il.
