🇬🇧 Volunteering in February and March

Calendar of volunteering activities in February and March 2022

8 maintenance walks and 1 field trip for monitoring

In 2021, we start a new format in our maintenance activities: it is the caretakers who guide the walks (always with our support, of course)! It was a big step forward and we are very proud that our trails have such special people caring for them and sharing their love for this territory.
In the first months of 2022, we prepared 8 maintenance walks, inland and along the coast, in Alentejo and Algarve regions, during weekdays and weekends. Anyway, there are walks for all tastes and shapes!

Who are our hikers? How are they seen by the local community? What’s its impact on this region?

Who remembers when we counted hikers and field surveys in 2017? Well, this year we do it again and the first round takes place in February.

The counting require the presence of a large team on the trails, about 80 people per day. In 2017, Rota Vicentina had the privilege to have many volunteers and it would be good to repeat this feat.

We want to establish a fixed set of volunteers that will be able to ensure their presence in several sessions throughout 2022 (there will be 6 in total). Before the start of the first field day, an online training session will be held for the volunteers and a manual will also be available.

Are you with us?

The UBUNTU meeting

The term, of South African origin, embodies the essence of community and cooperation, as suggested by its literal translation: "I am because we are".
