History

A decision of the Knesset Education Committee led to the Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel (SPNI) establishing SPIHS in 1984; SPIHS activated under the auspices of the SPNI until the end of 2007, in January 2008 becoming an independent NGO. The association maintains its own list of heritage sites, which should not be confused with the list of National Heritage Sites defined by the Israeli government's "Landmarks" program ( he|ציוני דרך).
