Growing plants for future generations - Blomberg | ijgd 28317 | 2018-08-25 - 2018-09-09 | ENVI | Age: 16 - 26

 

 

Work: You will work in the Bergwaldoffensive project organized by the Bavarian government. One very important aspect of the work is the protective function of mountain forests, which should be there for future generations, too. You will plant fir trees, sycamore trees and beech trees in highly sensitive mountain forest areas, to enable a new generation of mixed woodland to develop. You will spend a couple of days cutting down small trees with a handsaw so the further developed, stronger trees can thrive. All the work you do, will be supervised by an experienced forester of the Bavarian forest administration. You will gain an insight into the relationships within the ecosystem of a mountain forest and how sustainable cultivation works. You will be driven to your work location (15-30min) and tools and work gloves will be provided by the forestry. You absolutely have to bring mountain boots with a very stable sole, rain gear and sun protection!!!

Accomodation and food: You will stay in tents in the youth settlement Hochland in Königsdorf. You will cook together.

Location: Benediktbeuern

Location and Leisure: You will be in the most popular holiday region of Bavaria! You can go on hiking trips or go swimming in the Kochel lake. You can also take trip to Munich. More ideas: a trip to the Walchen lake or stroll trough the old town in Bad Tölz. Your supervisors are happy to offer a guided tour, where you can learn a lot about the topics of forest management, organisation of forestry work in Bavaria, climate protection and protective forest.
