Under action A.5 of the project VOLUNTEER ESCAPES – Volunteer with European Solidarity Corps for Activities in Portugal, we are looking for volunteers to:
- Support regular activities of a nursery of native plants, including carrying out activities with the general public;
- Complete control and removal activities in respect of invasive species and the restoration of the locations in question through the plantation of native species. Furthermore, the recovery of water courses will also be completed through natural engineering techniques.
These activities take place in the headquarters and nursery of MARCA ADL, on the coasts of Castelo de Montemor-o-Novo, in the local eco-trail and locations encompassed in the Natura 2000 network (SIC Monfurado and SIC Cabrela). The tasks will also take place in schools and other informal settings to ensure the dissemination of project activities.
The volunteer will form part of a small team and will be in contact with other national and international volunteers. The activities run during week days, but may occasionally take place over the weekend.
