Looking for a special holiday? Environmental Volunteering is our suggestion! Try Portugal, together with the NGO Montis, a  forest management expert, prepared this 7-day program that is part of a project to help control, clean, replant, decimate and guarantee regrowth of native trees and vegetation, thus working to better soil and forest management and control of future forest fires. Interventions have been distributed in four very distinct locations with different needs.  Join us in making the difference!
