You will be helping with various conservation projects taking place in the middle of the Saar-Hunsrück natural park area, which is located within the triangle area of Germany, France and Luxembourg. You will be taking care of various biotopes, a nature trail and a garden with trees and bushes, as well as taking down fences, protecting the local plants and other forestry activities. Besides this, you will be laying down paths which lead directly from directly from the camp to a former Roman legionnaire's camp, through the garden and into a valley with beavers. In this project you will learn a lot about forests and the work of foresters.
