About the local hosting organizationThe Town Hall of Calpe. Excellent touristic resort full of life, specially in summer time.
About the volunteer workThe area is covered with forest but due to a very dry and hot weather of the last months there is a great risk of fire in these forests. More than 45 of the fires in the area are created by tourists because of lack of information and negligence. Volunteers will try to inform, educate and control tourists in order to prevent fires in the area. For such work they will use bicycles, so their main work will be to bike around a marvelous Mediterranean forest checking that everything is OK.
Local accommodationVolunteers will live and sleep in a nice hut up in the mountains and will be able to go down with a car to enjoy the night life there. During the day (Monday-Friday) volunteers will work in the forest in an isolated house 5 km away from Calpe but with all facilities. Volunteers will cook for themselves.
