Age: 18 and over 

Description: This year, the Vall de Siarb shelter will host a camp about territorial conservation. The group of participants will collaborate in the cleaning and reconstruction of the old rural roads of the valley, collaborating with the Museum of Paths Project that was created by the entity. Participants will be able to enjoy a unique natural environment in the valley of the High Pyrenees.

Type of Work: The volunteers will be working on restoring and improving old roads: cleaning and clearing paths, rebuilding dry stone walls, placing stones, and improving trail marks with paint or better signalling. They will spend the working hours surrounded by forests and fields. Note: the work is mostly manual and physical.

Please note: When you click on the more info and application link below, you will leave the VSI website and go to the SCI database, search engine and application pages of SCI (VSI is the Irish branch of SCI). The projects listed on the database are managed by SCI branches and partners across Europe, the project titles and descriptions are generally written by non-native English speakers, so please excuse us if some of them are hard-to-understand or use unusual language!

Project fees: VSI is a small charity and we charge a fee (€55  - €155) to volunteer on our projects, this includes food, accommodation, insurance whilst on the project and VSI annual membership. More info here.

Please note, some of the descriptions mention an additional fee (of €50.00) when applying through non-SCI organisations. As VSI is an SCI branch there are no additional fees.
