The municipal park Naciente Rio Loro, or Loro River Water Springs, is located in the central mountain range of Costa Rica, about 1200 meters above sea level, and consists of 23 hectares of land. It was created by the Running Water Technical Commission of the Municipality of the small city of Cartago to protect the springs that provide running water to nearby communities. The park also aims to offer environmental education and a place of leisure for people of these communities and of downtown Cartago.

Volunteers will engage in park maintenance, assist in trail building and other infrastructure work, guide visitor groups, and do some office tasks in the park. They will educate visitors about the park and translate whenever possible. Volunteers must be environmentally aware, hardworking, driven, and flexible.
