Additional Information:

 Volunteers can join this programme and take part in conservation work in Nevada involving a Cavity-Nesting Bird Habitat Improvement Project.

Spend your summer volunteering and camping in some of the most beautiful wilderness locales in the American West. All volunteers will be based out of Reno, Nevada and will spend their time in the field on a habitat improvement project that encompasses the entire state of Nevada.

Project Details:

Volunteers are needed to help with the restoration of cavity-nesting songbird habitats by removing mining claim posts throughout the state of Nevada. By pulling those abandoned posts volunteers will protect songbirds, reptiles, and small mammals from injuries and will restore nesting, foraging and migratory wildlife habitats for dozens of native wildlife species across the state.

Type of volunteers needed:

Typical volunteers are between 18 to 35 years old, fit, healthy, and capable of carrying out work in strenuous conditions. In addition, you need to be prepared to hike to and from work sites, and be comfortable living and camping in a tent. No specific skills are needed.

2012 Dates - 6 weeks:

There is a programme cost of £375 to pay to take part in the whole programme for 6 weeks - which covers all food and lodging, transportation once you arrive in Reno, all tents and equipment usage, training, orientation and back up.
