Reforestation Volunteer Project, Iceland
Organisation: WorkingAbroad Projects
Type: Agriculture & Forestry, Environment & Wildlife Conservation, Manual work & Construction
Volunteers are needed to help with ecological restoration and reforestation in the region of Úlfljótsvatn lake in the southwest of Iceland. Parts of the area have been heavily eroded or degraded and are in an urgent need of attention. Volunteers will assist with the reforesting in the area, by planting seedlings and by fertilising young trees.
This project can give you an opportunity to make an environmental difference, plant trees that will bind carbon from the atmosphere, create shelter for other life and battle soil erosion.
Volunteers will be working in an area around Úlfljótsvatn lake in the southwest of Iceland. Úlfljótsvatn is situated south of the beautiful, Þingvellir national park and in the area of the so called “Golden circle” of Iceland (including geysers, waterfall and beautiful nature area).
