Peenemuende is located in the northern part of the island Usedom. On the island, volunteers will find an impressive landscape with steep coastlines, forests, swamps, marshland, and last but not least, charming fishing spots. Between 1936 and 1989 the region was restricted (for army use only), therefore the nature in the surroundings has developed undisturbed. Looking back in history Peenemuende participated in the development of the V-Rockets and today there is a memorial as well as a technical historical information centre reminding us of it.
This work camp is for nature lovers, since the work will be mainly outdoors. The volunteers will work in a nature park on an island named Usedom located in the Baltic Sea. Typical for the region are salt and orchid meadows. 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.
Accommodation: The volunteers will stay in trailers at a youth hostel. Food: Full board is included. There will be someone cooking for the participants.
Excursions are planned, short trips to nearby towns, swimming.
Please bring a sleeping bag, a mattress pad, working clothes, working gloves and motivation.
