Food, Lodging and Travel

Volunteers are provided with lodging and utilities – free of charge.  The lodging facilities are a shared, four-bedroom, two-bath home located in the forest, 1/4 mile from the Galena Creek Visitor Centre.  These facilities offer limitless opportunities for exploration and recreation.

The lodging environment creates a great atmosphere in which participants are immersed with cultures from all over the world.

A $150 per diem is provided per week to cover your food and other living costs.  Food is provided during the five weeks of residential camp time, and otherwise volunteers are responsible for their own food purchases.

Volunteers are responsible for their transport to and from the United States. You can fly into Reno-Tahoe International Airport or San Francisco International Airport. If you choose to fly into San Francisco, you can fly or take a bus or train to Reno. The bus or train will take more time but is usually the cheapest. Pickup for volunteers will be arranged. Once in Reno, all transportation during work projects is provided by the programme.

Airfare to Nevada (or San Francisco), travel/medical insurance, and personal expenses are not included in the programme price. It is mandatory for you to take out travel and medical insurance for the duration of the project.
