January Ramble: visit the Al Karaana lagoons site

Saturday January 12th, 2019

We start the new year with a unique opportunity to visit the Al Karaana lagoons site, as it undergoes major work. As a reminder, Al Karaana Lagoons have been used for years as an industrial sewage dumping area. Qatar (Ashghal) has decided to clean the area to preserve the environment. We’ll be allowed to see the changes that are taking place, and observe the wildlife that still uses the site as a habitat.

Please note that since we’ll be entering an active construction site, there will be some restrictions applied.  We have to limit the number of participants. Children will not be allowed on this trip, and closed shoes are a must. 4x4 is not required, we can carpool from our meeting point and convoy to the site of the lagoons.

December Ramble: Explore the underwater world of Qatar and picnic

November Ramble: 

Friday November 7th, 2018

The rains are behind us and blue skies are here…for now. This means that the “Good Weather” clock has started ticking and we have 5-6 months to explore and enjoy every opportunity, give or take a few sandstorms along the way.

Our first outdoor outing of this season was last Friday to Umm Tais and it was perfect…weather, water temperature, our tour guide (Dr. Aspa, who wowed us with a refractometer! And, if we are lucky she will bring it this Friday, too.), and 70 smiling participants. See our facebook page for photos.

 Our second outing is highlighted below. We are lucky to have our speaker take us to one of the areas that he particularly enjoyed as he circled Qatar. Please read for ALL the details that you will need to attend this first of its kind outing.

 Lastly, we are VERY EXCITED & HONORED to have PIERRE DANIEL speak to us this Wednesday evening at our monthly meeting. His talk is titled: Run Around Qatar: A Unique Journey Through Qatar’s Natural Beauty.
