Environmental protection and awareness activities in Loro River Water Springs Park in Costa Rica
- Volunteer Opportunity posted by CADIP
Short-Term (few weeks/months)
The Municipal Park “Naciente Rio Loro” (or Loro River Water Springs) is located in the Central Mountain Range of Costa Rica at approximately 1200 meters above the sea level and consists of 23 hectares of land.
The creation of the park was an initiative of the Running Water Technical Commission of the Municipality of the small city of Cartago aiming to protect the springs that provide running water to the nearby communities. It also aims to offer environmental education and a place for leisure for the people of these communities and of downtown Cartago.
During the school year (from March to November), the park receives groups of elementary school students. Over the weekends and during the "summer" vacation (from December to April), the park receives visitors that come to spend the day with their families and friends.
As a volunteer in this project, you'll have to: • clean trails, • maintain infrastructure, • assist with the groups that visit the park, • translate into other languages if necessary, • do some office tasks if necessary.
