About the local hosting organizationIf you are keen on nature, come and give the Dronne Valley path a new breath ! Get involved in a local project ! In the far West of the Dordogne region, La Roche-Chalais is a village of 3000 inhabitants, crossed by the Greenwich meridian. It is a village built on a limestone promontory, overlooking the river "Dronne" and surrounded by beautiful forests. The Municipality team is committed in areas related to youth and is happy to welcome you during these three weeks of workcamp.
About the volunteer workYou will work on cleaning and clearing a hiking trail so local people can use it again during the summer time. Your work will have a direct impact and will make the track practicable for the full season. On the menu : cleaning, pruning and clearing ! On the way, you will restore an old bread oven, located on the path : the chance to highlight the local heritage. This work does not require any special technical skills, only motivation!
