|This is a weekly volunteer program, every Saturday, with Abel, our field worker. The program starts at 8h30, with the meeting point at ATN's office. For one day you will help Abel in all his tasks: tree pruning, trail cleaning, maintenance of the tree nursery, tree plantation, collecting seeds, fire surveillance, surveillance of the horses and cow herds.
This is a proposal for a different weekend. With the duration of 7 hours, we insure the transportation from Figueira to Faia Brava.
|Every year, during the summer, we organize work camps to receive volunteers from across the world. Check our agenda.|
|If you are planning to come to Portugal in another period, and you want to spend some days or months being part of our field team, you only have to inform ATN about the period for which you would be available. Besides our proposals on helping the field team, we are open to your ideas. Just let us know a little about your personal expectations and what do you want to achieve. We would like to help developing your own projects at Faia Brava.
For example, we have received some biology students who developed biodiversity inventories, and have done a great work.
There are no limits, just show us your idea!
- cleaning and marking the Côa Valley Grand Route
- maintaining the tree nursery
- planting trees and forestry work
