Volunteering and Citizen Science for Private Land Conservation

Nature conservation often relies on volunteers and citizen scientists for support. Our project partners are hosting Workcamps, Bioblitzes and other volunteering events on private land. We would like to invite you to join these events. This way we can foster the exchange of experiences and knowledge between landowners and conservation organisations throughout Europe. Have a look below at some of the events that are planned for 2022 and feel free to contact us for more information.
