Ecological niche with a lookout point Ashdod | Nahal Lachish
The ecological niche is a preliminary project as part of the rehabilitation of the Lachish Stream in Ashdod.
We initially draw the water from the stream, purifying it with biological filters which increases the water quality. After undergoing a purification process, the water flows back to the stream, thereby contributing to improving the quality of the water in the entire stream.
The high quality of the water enables the planting of a larger variety of plants, motivating a robust ecological process whereby a variety of butterflies, birds, and insects are attracted to the area. Thus is created a quality wetland habitat which attracts and sustains a diversity of life. We established a bird watching center above the water in the niche, for the benefit of students and residents.
