Although our friends in the north might not feel it yet, summer is most definitely on the way!
We are now only about 4 week away from returning to Langidalur to setup the volunteer base camp in preparation for official start of the 2014 programme planned for 20th May.
As we move into our fieldwork season, we need to complete the registration process for everyone intending to join us this summer. Once we are back out on the trails, communications can be difficult (we don’t leave anyone behind in the office) so we ask all our returning volunteers to complete the registration process by 18th April.
Don’t miss your chance!
We would like to invite our new volunteers, and everyone who has worked with us in Thórsmörk and Goðaland, to join our Þórsmörk Team News group on Facebook.
Although the summer still seems far away, we have been busy planning projects and putting together our 2014 team. We began the search for volunteers at the start of January but the response has been so good that we have now allocated most of the places. We were overwhelmed by the number of enquires and applications that we have received and it has been a real challenge for us to choose from so many good applicants.
We expect to fill the remaining places by the end February so if you would still like to join us this summer, please go ahead and apply as soon as possible. Full details are available on our volunteer opportunities page.
This season we are responsible for recruiting all of our volunteers directly and we will also soon be publishing details of additional short-term (2-week) places for this summer. Full details of these will be available here on 7th February.
