Come to the beautiful Baar region to contribute to a major nature and biodiversity protection project. Your tasks will mainly be to clear up and shape forest edges as well as clear up rough pastures. In concrete terms, you will mainly:
• Use hand saws and loppers to cut hedges and schrubs;
• Pile up the fallen branches to be removed from the area.
The opening up of the forest edges is very important for its ecosystem! The work will be led by a professional instructor who supervises the nature protection project in the Baar region. He will be very happy to share his knowledge with you and answer your questions about this very specific area.
No previous experience is needed. You will work 30 hours per week, somewhere between 8am to 4pm from Monday to Friday with a lunchbreak. Please bring warm clothing that is suitable for outdoor work (that can get dirty), as well as sturdy shoes!

Your group will stay in a community house in the centre of Blumberg. You will sleep in shared rooms with beds (please bring a sleeping bag). Toilets are directly in the house but to shower, you will walk to the sports hall, located 150m from the house. The house has a kitchen for you to use and a garden. Please be aware that there is no washing machine and no Wi-Fi in the house. There is a bakery very close by (200m) and the next supermarkets are 700m away.

Your group of volunteers will be responsible for grocery shopping and cooking together. The food will be bought with the camp budget and everybody will take turns for cooking and cleaning. In order to reduce our carbon footprint on the planet, we encourage volunteers to reduce meat and try more sustainable dishes.

Blumberg is a town of approximately 10.000 inhabitants, located in the very south of Germany, only 5km away from the border with Switzerland and close to the source of the Danube River. Nowadays, the region is best known for tourism. Indeed, during your stay you will find a lot of attractive activities to do! Due to the beautiful landscapes, there are many hiking routes that can be started from Blumberg. You can also visit the Railway Museum (Eisenbahnmuseum) and go on a ride with the Sauschwänzlebahn, a historical train ride of 25km. At the weekend, you can also visit the cities of Donaueschingen where the Danube takes its source, travel to a beautiful waterfall in Triberg or to the famous Rhine Falls in Schaffhausen in Switzerland. Last but not least, locals and especially youngsters are looking forward to get to know you and maybe organise some activities with you.

This project is organised by the city of Blumberg, the district administration Schwarzwald-Baar-Kreis and IBG. This is the first time that Blumberg is hosting an international workcamp and the locals are excited to meet you! Your work will contribute to the “Naturschutzgroßprojekt Baar”, a very big project for nature protection in the Baar region.
The region called “Baar” is a high area (650 to 800m above sea level), which spreads from the Back Forest to the west, over to the Swabian Alb to the east. Since 2013, parts of this region are under protection and benefit from national funds to maintain, protect and improve its many different natural habitats and its incredibly rich biodiversity. Every day, you will work in the area of the Baar close to Blumberg, supporting this very special project. By participating in this workcamp, you are supporting action against climate change and the protection of biodiversity (UN SDG 13 and 15).
