The Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise National Park, began its recovery in 1970 and has always considered volunteers as being an important. Each year hundreds of young people, students, environmentalists, researchers and teachers cooperate by freely offering their time to help the many activities the Park’s volunteers promote. Tasks can include collecting rubbish, helping the public in the Visiters Centres, marking the pathways, controlling the Park lands, creating awareness among visitors, mountain rescue, cultural activities and maintaining simple open-air structures. Volunteers take part individually, in small groups and in organized committees. Park volunteers grow in number each year and have also become more specialised and devoted to the actions which they carry out. The youngest take part in groups within the Nature Camps; the others, organised in special patrols, take part in the programme "Volunteers for Nature" which makes up watch-dogs in the more fragile and strategic areas of the Park, maintaining a surveillance over the Park lands and helping educate and raise awareness about the problems the Park faces. Without the volunteers, life in the Park would be less funny and poorer. Nature Volunteers: This initiative is promoted by the Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise National Park to offer young people who deeply care about the environment, a unique opportunity to work and live in contact with Nature. They spend a period up to 7, 14 or 21 days together with other motivated and involved people in an outpost of the Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise Park , working with Park operators, researchers, technicians and rangers in their various activities of prevention, control, education, assistance, maintenance and research. To participate, volunteers must be over 18 years old, have had some previous work experience in a natural environment and be able to live comfortably for a period in a mountain area, quietly and self- sufficiently in conditions that are sometimes difficult. This volunteer programme is provided by a group of 2-3 people equipped with radio telephones, a badge from the National Park and basic equipment that allows them to carry out their activities. This experience can be done throughout the year according to a calendar the Park holds. The Park provides lodging and contributes to the cost of food (€ 7,00/day), Volunteers follow the directions given by the Park personnel. The most interesting roles are: patrol activities by telemetric methods, fauna and flora surveys, keep in radio contact with the Park rangers, assistance to the public, follow scientific work, research, photographic reporting, special activities with very young visitors. All these activities are carried out with the help and the supervision of the Park personnel. VIRTUAL VOLUNTEERING: Translation of documents and promoting volunteer programmes.
