Few people know about the Nature Volunteers Program.
Those who take part in it are mainly women and young people who silently and modestly take up the banner of environmental and social care which is needed every day to protect Nature, and they do it with incredible efficiency and dedication.
These people undertake a whole range of activities:
The Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise National Park, since it began its recovery back in 1970, has always considered volunteers as being an important aspect.
Each year hundreds of young and adult people, students, environmentalists, researchers and teachers cooperate, by freely offering their time, to help the many activities the Park that volunteers promote.
These cover aspects like collecting rubbish, helping the public in the Visit Centres, marking the pathways, controlling the Park lands, creating awareness among visitors, mountain rescue, cultural activities, maintaining simple open-air structures.
Individually and in small groups, in organized committees, the Park Volunteers grow in number each year and become more specialized and devoted to the activities they carry out.
The Volunteers organized in special patrols, take part in the programme "Volunteers for Nature" while maintaining a surveillance over the Park lands help to educate and raise awareness about the problems the Park faces.Without Volunteers life in the Park would be less funny and poorer.
