Lake, Hills and Environment (Sipplingen Lake Constance)
Description: You will assist in the maintenance of a nature reserve while enjoying the magnificent view of Lake Constance. The camp in Sipplingen (near Überlingen), on the shore of Lake Constance, has been organised in cooperation with the regional office for nature and landscape protection for several years now. The territory around Lake Constance is a nature reserve and the landscape around Sipplingen is characterised by steep banks. This area is the habitat of rare and endangered species. It must be maintained regularly in order to preserve the biodiversity and to avoid overgrowth of bushes and trees. Join other volunteers in ensuring that flower loving insects will still find a wide range of these essential field flowers.
Type of Work: Working under the supervision of experts in a slope area: clearing the area by cutting bushes, removing dried wood and branches in a slope area and building a path.
Study Theme: Biotope and species protection, development of the cultural landscape, explanation of flora and fauna
Accommodation: In solid tents directly at Lake Constance, modern sanitary facilities inside a building, you will cook together; possibility to swim in the lake
Requirements: Interest in ecological themes, being prepared and ready for physical work outside on a steep slope, good physical condition and safe walking in difficult terrain necessary. Since you will work on a steep slope, work shoes or hiking boots with profile are essential!
