Volunteers in the Nature Park
Doing something meaningful, meeting new people, having fun, expanding knowledge and skills, actively helping to shape the world and the environment: if that's what you want, then you're in the right place – regardless of age and qualifications.
In the 'Thuringian Slate Mountains/Upper Saale' Nature Park, volunteers are often in action: as nature and landscape guides, as biotope caretakers in valuable ecosystems, as well as translators, designers, amateur photographers, ideas people, etc.
In order for a nature park to be a nature park, it requires the commitment of many, including volunteers. Volunteering doesn't just mean working for free, it means furthering your own development. Many volunteers have later become full-time employees...
Volunteers are sought in various areas at the Nature Park for our administration as well as for our partners.
- Biotope caretakers (in the months October to February)
- Translators (German-English)
- Nature Park ambassadors
- Nature Park ideas people
- Support in Plothen tourist information
- Supervision of the Lehesten Nature Park information centre
