4 May 2018

The enrolment period for the III Work Camp Monte da Espenuca is already open.

On this occasion we will focus on the elimination of invasive exotic species at the spot of Chelo.

The aim of the 13 participants, accompanied by 3 instructors, will be to continue with the elimination of the small-leaf spiderwort (Tradescantia fluminensis) along the As Bouzas spring, a small tributary which flows into the River Mandeo by the Chelo footbridge.

The volunteers of the last edition did a great job by eliminating small-leaf spiderwort and hydrangea. Afterwards, Fragas do Mandeo kept checking their reappearance and planted 80 laurels in the area previously occupied by hydrangea. It is now time to continue upstream to avoid floods sweeping along propagules of small-leaf spiderwort that could take root at places where it had already been eliminated.

But it was not all work, since the program includes cultural and touristic activities which allow the volunteers to know this region, to visit natural areas and nearby towns full of monuments, and to go to some cultural events or traditional festivities.

As in previous editions, volunteers from different regions, aged between 18 and 30, will be coming (although this year it won’t be international). Therefore, the work camp is a meeting point for young people from different origins, who can spend time together and get involved in the local society within an environment that promotes the values of social harmony, tolerance and team work.

This work camp is promoted by Fragas do Mandeo, applied for by the Coirós Council and organized by the Directorate General for Youth, Participation and Volunteering of the Xunta de Galicia. The management will be assumed by Ribeirán Proxectos Naturais, counting on Jesús Díaz as Director.
