Our third birthday!
Preparation work at the volunteer camp stopped briefly on Thursday, so that we could celebrate the volunteer programme’s third birthday with chocolate cake and coffee (a welcome break from working on the roof of the volunteer hut in freezing cold temperatures).
Established by the Icelandic Forest Service (Skógrækt ríkisins) in 2012 as a pilot project, the programme now recruits, trains and leads volunteers on trail maintenance and nature conservation projects throughout Thórsmörk, Goðaland and beyond. In 2014, over 240 weeks of volunteer work were completed.
We would like to thank our volunteers and friends for all their hard work and support over these three amazing years.
(The cake was extremely good…)
