Verenigd Koninkrijk | Natuur en constructie
Samen met 7 andere vrijwilligers ga je voor 14 dagen naar een natuur en constructieproject.
Het project duurt van 1 t/m 15 juli.
Let op: naast het inschrijfgeld betaal je ter plekke nog een lokale bijdrage van £ 80. (Ca. € 89)
We'll be creating a local nature reserve in Kilmarnock, a short walk every morning from Dean Castle. We'll do a variety of practical conservation tasks in the two weeks, including path work and planting, to make a haven for wildlife and people. We’ll also be creating a wildflower meadow to benefit bees, butterflies and birds and maintaining wildlife hedges and woodland at the new nature reserve as well as helping out at the Park. Local volunteers will be joining in to help out for a couple of days as well.
You'll be housed at the brand new residential centre in the country park just along the main drive from the castle. There will be four to a room in bunk beds and no need for sleeping bags! There's a kitchen with plenty of cooking equipment for you to use to cook up a tasty meal at the end of the day to use at the centre as well as a recreational space to hang out in the evenings and weekends. You'll all work together to cook and clean as a team and have a chance to share inter-cultural meals and experiences.
Dean Castle Country Park is in Kilmarnock, East Ayrshire and you may recognise it from the famous Outlander series as Beaufort Castle! There are local pubs and cafes nearby as well as a cinema in Kilmarnock. For weekend trips, there are plenty of tourist attractions within easy reach of Kilmarnock including Loch Lomond, Isle of Arran, Glasgow, Edinburgh or the beautiful beaches of Troon and Ayr. You could try a ceilidh (fun folk dancing for everyone!) or last year we also brought a dance group in to do folk dancing with the volunteers.
Dean Castle Country Park has over 80 hectares of countryside and yet is set in the heart of Kilmarnock as a free resource for the whole community. The Country Park boasts beautiful woodland walks, an adventure play area, urban farm, visitor centre, tearoom, shop and a fantastic 14th century castle. With scenic paths and trails to explore, the park is a great place to get away from the stresses of everyday life and see some fantastic wildlife. Volunteers are vital to the Park and help us improve the Park for wildlife and make it a better place for the community.
A love of nature and the outdoors and willingness to work in all weathers will help you enjoy this experience!
Sunshine is not guaranteed in Scotland! Expect some good old Scottish weather! Outdoor clothing that can get muddy, waterproofs, sturdy boots and/or wellies are essential.
