Your work will include different activities in a natural park like to build an apiary, to help farmers or similar works. Your help is also needed for maintenance works, e. g. on orchid meadows, in forests or on a bird island.
This project is especially for nature lovers. Please be prepared to work 5-6 hours a day. Volunteers should come prepared for light or heavy work and be motivated for anything to help the rangers of the Nature Reserve.
Accommodatie en maaltijden
You will live on a camping site close to a very nice lake. You will sleep in tents (2 persons per tent) on camping beds with mattresses. If it will rain you can sleep in a building. A kitchen, sanitary facilities and a big meeting room are provided on the camping site. A washing machine can be used. Please be aware, that there is only limited internet connection!
The volunteers will prepare their own meals. Please bring some recipes and maybe special spices for easy cooking.
Locatie en vrije tijd
The project is situated in the Nossentiner Schwinzer Heide Nature Reserve, a bird sanctuary, situated between the two towns Goldberg and Guestrow in the Federal district of Mecklenburg, in the north east of Germany. This area is covered with forests and you can find a lot of beautiful lakes there. The nearest big village is Krakow am See. The place is isolated, but the surrounding nature is beautiful. So please be prepared to spend some weeks in the nature without shopping opportunities.
The freetime activities will be decided by the groups interets and wishes. There are a lot of opportunities to discover the countryside by foot, bike or boat. You’ll have the chance to visit bigger towns and to make trips to the Baltic Sea. The area is covered with beautiful lakes where you can swim. If you like, you could do guided tours through the forest or learn something about regional endangered animals.
In this camp you have to be able to ride a bike (very) well!
We ask the volunteers to make sure that their travel is compatible with the most recent recommendations of health authorities with regards to the spread of the Corona virus. In case you are travelling from or recently travelled through a higher risk area, please check the health recommendations of the country where the project takes place, as restrictions may apply (e.g. ban, quarantine, isolation). We will take the necessary health precautions for our projects, but please contact your sending organisation to get more information in case you have any concerns.
