Work has an environmental character. In Altea, there is a river Algar, which is natural habitat and where protected plants inhabit. At the same time, there are some invasive plants. The task of volunteers will be to differentiate those plants, control of the plant in biotope and clean the river from the invasive plants. The municipality will ask volunteers to do other types of manual work for the environment, depending on the necessities of the municipality in a certain moment. Tools and working boots will be available. One of the tasks could be to help on archaeological excavation site, depending on working permissions and how clean is river Algar at the moment when project is taking place.
Accommodation will be in a country house 1 km away from Altea La Vella, which is a small town 4 km away from Altea provided with matresses and pillows. Volunteers will cook for themselves. The accommodation is basic.
