PROGRAM

The volunteer program is mainly audiovisual monitoring using trail cameras, which takes place in the Green Life Reserve and in the reservations of La Marta and El Copal. Since December 2021, we are also launching monitoring in Tapanti national park. Another activity is field patrols to protect the fauna and flora of our reserve, or to maintain and create sightseeing trails. The program also includes volunteering, kitchen duty and other necessary daily activities. There are days off of course. The program is enriched by a visit to the thermal baths in Orosi, where we relax after a demanding forest stay.
