Camp for Nature Lovers 3
Description: The forestry office holds 7 forester s ranges with ca. 8.500ha woodland area. The terretory extends from the north of Berlin until Wandlitz in Brandeburg. To the muncipality Wandlitz belongs the lake LIEPNITZSEE and the forest around.
Type of Work: The main works will be done in the wood. The volunteers will do various environmental works as well as renovation and construction works on the island and in the forests around the island. Possible tasks are removing bushes and invasive small tree species, collecting rubbish and wood, repairing works and so on. Volunteers should be prepared to be flexible and take part in any work that will support the foresters.
Accommodation: Your accommodation will be very basic. You will sleep in three large tents on camp beds. The infrastructure on the island is very basic without electricity and warm water, not even a warm shower. There is no heating in the tents and on the island you have to use compost toilets. Even in summer, nights can be very cold. Please bring warm cloths and underwear with you and take care, your sleeping bag is warm enough (or bring an additional blanket). The accommodation is quite isolated so volunteers should come with ideas about how to entertain themselves in the evenings The foresters of the project have built a nice and comfortable block house where the group will meet and eat. The group will cook for themselves. Volunteers will buy their food with the budget that will be provided for them. You are welcome to bring your own ingredients with you.
Requirements: You must be able to swim
Approximate Location: The island is very isolated, and you have to be a real nature lover to participate in this project. You must use the ferry (and it stops running about 8 p.m.) and will row a boat every day. Please be prepared to not be able to visit Berlin very often LIEPNITZSEE is one of the cleanest lakes in Brandenburg. Info: Info: www.liepnitzinsel.de
