    Help us work with local communities to restore damaged forest ecosystems!

    Adventurous and motivated volunteers are needed for help with ecological projects.

    Learn how to grow, plant, and care for trees; use a machete; speak Spanish; build with bamboo; and more!

    Housing is provided in a beautiful, beach-front house with private yard. Stay with the Project Director's family in a safe, communal-living environment.

    The project has been hosting volunteers, teaching environmental principles, and planting trees for over 15 years! This is a non-profit organization project that serves the local community and environment. As such, we charge a small fee of $5/day, which includes lodging and food.
