The "WE LOVE NATURE" workcamp has been thought by a group of local young, with good will and a great love for their territory and has the aim to involve partners, volunteers and local community for a correct use of Archeological Site of Monte Pruno. First archeological discoveries date from the 20s, when during some agricultural works, many jewels were found. In the 80s Salerno’s Archaeological Authority started a systematic program of exploration and scientific investigation that lasts also now in collaboration with the Federico II Univeristy of Naples. LEGAMBIENTE LOCAL GROUP: The Legambiente Sammaro born in 1991 carried on different battles against pollution and for the environment, has hosted many international workcamps. The local group is used to work with the schools to sensitize young people to respect the environment.

The aim is to make the site a pleasant and welcoming area to the flow of tourists and archeology lovers

Monte Pruno is situated 2 km far from village of Roscigno, in the heart of Cilento. It is called "balcony Alburni", because overlooks the only path which makes communication possible between the Diano valley and archeological area; its location makes it suitable for a stable settlement in the course of the centuries. Other areas to visit are the Certosa di Padula, the gorges of Calore in Felitto, Castelcivita caves.
Volunteers should be interested in ecology and archeology. And nature lovers.
We have been organising a voluntary campaign for 19 years, promoting summer-camps in many protected areas both in Italy and abroad, with the aim of raising public awareness on environmental issues such as forest-fire or habitat degradation, collecting information on natural resources, promoting green tourism, developing sustainable economy, helping people to be more active for the conservation of our natural and cultural heritage.
International workcamps, promoted by Legambiente, are part of the associationsâ€™ main campaigns and volunteers activities contribute to achieve the goals of each campaign.
The common aim of environmental work camps is to improve areas with a distinctive naturalistic and cultural feature and to help solving environmental emergencies of our country. The main activities volunteers carry out are related to paths maintenance or beaches and protected areas cleaning; furthermore, volunteers collaborate in fire prevention or raising awareness on environmental issues.
Some work camps are organized within the campaign â€œCarovana dell Alpiâ€ (Caravan of Alps). This campaign, which was first organised in 2002, take a detailed picture of the entire alpine system, reports cases of environmental decay and evaluates experiences of sustainable development and ecological re-conversion of the economy. It also proposes the consolidation of the system of natural protected areas.
The aims of â€œSalvalarteâ€ (Save the Art), carried out by volunteers, are to awake public opinion, promote the reclaim and restoration of monuments and art works that have been abandoned to decay.
