About the volunteer workThis work camp is for nature lovers, since the work will be mainly outdoors. There is a lot of work around the natural reserve. Since it's not possible to use common agricultural techniques, volunteers have to do everything manually. More over every meadow around has to be cut and the grass have to be put aside. The aim of this project is to help to protect this unique reserve through your contribution. Every spring rare flowers like orchids grow in the meadow; they need light and space to survive. Salt and orchid meadows are typical for the region. This project will be done in cooperation with environmental agency of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.
