Beit Ussishkin Nature Museum has information about area nature reserves, natural history, and bird-watching. The Israel Nature and Parks Authority staff is a good resource for planning itineraries that include national parks in other parts of the country. The visitor information service at Moshav Beit Hillel is especially helpful, with a wide selection of bed-and-breakfast accommodations in the moshav, which is in the heart of the Hula Valley tourist region. The Tourist Information Center–Upper Galilee can also provide information.
