Many old meadows and abandoned stone terraces rich in biodiversity are in danger. The numbers of livestock sent out by farmers has declined and so have the mowing activities. As a result, bushes, scrubs and trees are claiming back the grasslands and are overgrowing the stone terraces. Without action, a valuable biodiversity hot spot with hundreds of different species will become forest. Moreover, invasive species are spreading progressively, pushing back native plants and endangering the floodplains and their typical structure along the Danube. There are not many dry grassland areas left, and we are here to preserve the last ones. We will cut the grass, the bushes and trees and remove the biomass from the areas.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

At Thayatal National Park we will be staying in the recently built Wildcat Camp. The facility is equipped with bedrooms for up to 6 persons with bathrooms, a common room and kitchen. Breakfast, packed lunch and dinner will be provided either in the camp, at the work site or in nearby restaurants. Wireless LAN will be available in the Camp.

During our time in Spitz, we will be staying at the local secondary school – the Neue Mittelschule Spitz, located in the heart of Wachau. You will need a sleeping bag.

During the camp we will also cook together.

Locatie en vrije tijd

The conservation area of Thayatal National Park – the smallest of Austria’s national parks – covers part of the Thaya Valley river landscape. While cutting through the Bohemian Massif the river Thaya created an enormously diverse landscape with protruding meanders, steep wet slopes of forest, dry grassland upon outstanding rock formations and beautiful meadows along the river. Together with the adjacent Podyjí National Park in the Czech Republic, it is one of the most interesting and diverse river valleys in Central Europe.


We will be working about 6 hours – sometimes in steep terrain, on hot days, but also very cold or rainy days etc. Therefore, some basic fitness is required.


If you have any underlying conditions such as allergies (to food, bees, pollen, penicillin etc.), heart conditions, epilepsy, troubles with your circulation or blood pressure, troubles with your joints or eyes or if you are required to take any medication on a regular basis, PLEASE INFORM THE CAMP LEADER AHEAD OF TIME so that appropriate measures can be taken in the case of an emergency.
