Volunteer for an environmental project in Monte Barro
Monte Barro is a really interesting small mountain, located in a hilly area between Milan and Lecco. In such a small area (665 ha), volunteers will find a high variety of landscapes and biodiversity, matching with history and culture. From their accommodation on the top of the mountain, volunteers will have the chance to admire the beautiful landscape offered by the pre-Alps chain and Como Lake.
Volunteers will also have the possibility to visit the archaeological site, the bird-watching point and the ethnographic museum located inside the Monte Barro Park, while having relaxing walks.
Volunteers will be manually removing weeds on the top of the mountain to encourage the breeding of rare flowers, which makes the Park an extraordinary natural botanical garden.
1. Spend 2-4 weeks working and living on top of a small mountain in Italy.
2. Assist in keeping the mountain clear of weeds to encourage the growth of rare flowers.
3. Explore Monte Barro and nearby places of interest, like Como Lake and the ethnographic museum.
