Volunteers in the Nature Park

Jugendliche aus aller Welt arbeiten im Workcamp am ehemaligen Grenzzaun bei Probstzella Peter Möller

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.

  • Photographers
  • 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
