This workcamp will aim to clear the trails that have been invaded by vegetation, cutting down some trees, pruning, and marking a trail called “Red Cap”. In this village, that relies on the “Drôme Provençale”, the encounter of forest and wild mountains creates diversity. Every morning, the team will leave to the work site half way up the mountain and will be able to witness the progress made.
Accomodation and food: In tents, on a campground

Project hosted by
This workcamp is an occasion for a true immersion in nature during the day : it will allow you to discover the beautiful Hautes-Alpes countryside, its fauna and its flora and for some time to exchange with the local inhabitants in the evenings. The proposed work is accessible to all but it involves walking in mountains every day to reach the site of the workcamp. L’espace Randonnée (Hiking area) of the Pays du Buech (www.buech-rando.com) brings together five communities of communes in the Hautes-Alpes around a common objective : develop, invigorate and promote non-motorised hiking activities (pedestrian, bike tourism, VTT and horse riding), for the purposes of tourism and local development. In the face of extensive maintenance work required every year over the 1000 kilometres of trails, since 2010 l’espace Randonnée organises many international volunteer workcamps in partnership with the association “Les Villages des Jeunes” (www.villagesdesjeunes.org).
Meeting point:Serres train station (05700) in the afternoon
