MAN­GROVE FES­TI­VAL

Friday - - Leisure Charts -

You may have seen the UAE’s sprawl­ing deserts, tow­er­ing moun­tains and ex­ten­sive beaches, but how about the rich for­est of man­groves that com­pletes the coun­try’s di­verse ge­o­graph­i­cal en­vi­ron­ment? You can ex­plore it at Umm Al Quwain’s Man­groves from the Wa­ter Fes­ti­val un­til to­mor­row. The four-day fes­ti­val at Khor Al Bei­dha (March 4 is ladies-only) aims to raise aware­ness of con­serv­ing man­groves through art ex­hi­bi­tions, work­shops, poetry, sto­ry­telling, dance and mu­sic per­for­mances, short film screen­ings and en­vi­ron­men­tal lec­tures. Don’t miss the boat race, kayak­ing, div­ing, paraglid­ing and yoga.
