About the local hosting organizationThe nature protection area 'Wüste und Glase' is a domain of the end moraine landscape in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania. It's a nature protection area since the 22nd of June 1994 and it goes over 190 hectares. Because of the privacy and the low exploitation of the place, the conditions are very good. There is a Germanic hill fort which alludes to settlement in prior periods. 'Wüste und Glase' in the heart of the area called 'Mecklenburgish Switzerland' is a wide landscape of forests, lakes, hills and lots of animals, so everyone who likes nature will love this place.
About the volunteer workThe volunteers will have to work in the forests and hills. A pond needs to be fenced to protect the rare fire bellied toad. There are other old fences that need to be removed. In the field of stones the volunteers will have to move heaps of hay to clear up the area, walking in the paths of the old Germanic people. The volunteers will go by bike from the accommodation to the working place. The work takes place in cooperation with the 'Manfred Hermsen Stiftung', the national office for Agriculture and Environment and the nature park 'Mecklenburg Switzerland'.
