The "Alte Nebel" between Lüssow and Bützow was the original course of the "Nebel" river. The lowlands along the river have been used intensively for decades, mainly as grassland and arable land, creating rather poor conditions for the local ecosystem.
The task of the State Forestry Agency was to create a development corridor with site-typical trees and shrubs along the "Alte Nebel" in order to accelerate the slow, natural forest development and to greatly reduce the input of plant protection products and fertilisers.
To this end, more than 200,000 trees such as willows, red alders, pedunculate oaks, fluttering elms, downy birches and a wide variety of forest edge shrubs have been planted along around 14 km of the river since 2018.
However, since the beaver has also found a new home along the "Alte Nebel", a large number of trees must now be protected from browsing by the beaver.
Your task will be to protect about 700 trees in an area of about 4 hectares with so-called wire trousers. The wire trousers are made of protection fence, which is cut to a length of 2.2 m, knotted together and erected. In addition, it is fixed to the ground by two stakes made of recycled plastic. The aim is to protect the trees from being bitten by beavers.
You will be accompanied by the staff of the local forestry office.
In addition to the practical work, the foresters will teach you a lot about nature and environmental protection in general and about the forest and its protection in particular. You will learn a lot about the local flora and fauna, their relevance for the ecosystem and the various measures for their protection.

In your free time, you can enjoy your quiet accommodation and the beautiful surroundings by playing sports and spending evenings together around the campfire.
After work, you can also cycle through the beautiful landscape conservation area where you also work.
Or you can take the train (S-Bahn) to the beautiful Hanseatic city of Rostock (travel time 25min), which lies directly on the Baltic Sea.
On the long weekend off (Friday to Sunday), it's worth taking a trip to Berlin, Hamburg or the beautiful sandy beaches of the Baltic Sea.

Landesforsten Mecklenburg-Vorpommern – Forstamt Schlemmin
(State Forestry of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania – Foresty office Schlemmin)
The forestry offices of Landesforsten Mecklenburg-Vorpommern perform the tasks of a unified forestry administration: in addition to their forestry work in the state-owned forest and their service offers, this also includes their work as a lower forestry authority - advising and promoting private forest ownership. They also inform all forest visitors about the importance of the forest and the tasks of forestry.

The ijgd has been organising volunteer service programmes since 1949. We are an independent, non-profit association for international youth work, a recognised independent youth welfare organisation, and one of the largest and oldest workcamp organisations in Germany. Each year, we assist around 4,000 young people into volunteer work in Germany and abroad. We give them the opportunity to be creative, act in solidarity, take responsibility for themselves, and discover their own true potential and strengths.
