ALPE DOSSO CAMP
This is one of the two international volunteer camps that Legambiente Lecco organizes inside the Orobie Regional Park in Valtellina.
It is a particularly challenging but fascinating camp, located at a mountain refuge, 1500 meters above sea level in the municipality of Delebio, reachable only by a two hour walk up a steep mountain trail. The harshness of this place has allowed the unaltered and preserved conservation of its natural characteristics, making this location an ideal place to experience a taste of life away from the city’s comforts in close contact with the alpine nature.
The work required to the volunteers, guided by the experience of the local consortium "Montagna Viva", regards the maintenance of the trails, forests and alpine pastures, focusing on the preservation and promotion of a mountain lifestyle which differs from the exploitation of the winter sports industry.
GEROLA ALTA CAMP
Inside the Orobie Regional Park in Valtellina, the camp takes place in the small village of Gerola Alta. Here volunteers are required to work on the maintenance of the paths, especially cleaning and arranging the cobblestones.
The possibility of hiking on the majestic peaks that surround the valley gives to the participant of this camp an experience full of fun and natural beauty.
