We will work on the meadows to make hay, and in the woodlands to clean them from neophytes. The core idea is to assist the Organisation with the traditional-art of work that aims to preserve the area and its wildlife.
Also, we will help at the European-Roller festival
(A protected bird from the region). Moreover, we will also have excursions to the wonderful protected species living on the side and visit the Mur-river for swimming.
Please bear in mind that we are going to be working with our hands under the sun and that some hard-work is expected! Also be aware that the work will take place outdoor all the time, different weather conditions should not be a big problem for you (you should like to be outdoor most of the time).
As integration with the community is a key element, we will have cultural interactions with the people in Straden and in the surrounding.
Accommodatie en maaltijden
Accommodation: We will be hosted in a school in Straden.
Food: We will cook for ourselves. (Please inform us whether you require a special diet).
