Created on: February 7, 2013
Summer Trail-building Projects: Two-week long volunteer camps at different locations around Lake Baikal which involve trail building and maintenance; construction of small bridges, resting places and other necessary infrastructure; gathering of garbage, etc. The idea is to create an foundation for ecological tourism around Lake Baikal and offer an alternative to industrial development in this pristine part of Siberia. The trails are also used as part of the environmental education program run by GBT.
Volunteer in the Office: Help in the office and contribute to the Environmental Education Programs during the summer or for longer periods!
