GROUP VOLUNTEERING

Group volunteers choose to volunteer for a day or more on a service project.  Projects can range from tree planting and maintenance, to construction, to road or trail improvements. While groups tend to be focused on providing a service to help the reserve, Cloudbridge staff work to expose volunteers to a wide variety of relevant topics while we hike to and from projects, and assist with guided discoveries while we work.

“How many people can say they’ve participated in reforesting a Costa Rican mountainside? Have rushing waterfalls as their backdrop and soundtrack? Learn about trees, flowers, birds, and bugs? Live in a cloud? And even watching a meteor shower from a mountaintop? I can now say I’ve done all that, and then some. We’ve worked hard, learned a lot, and played cards every night. Thank you Cloudbridge.”  Brent Grant, USA (Cloudbridge Volunteer, 2015)

“You can help the environment and you can be a part of a group of people who make a difference on our planet. But this experience could change you as well as give you the possibility to discover yourself in a new way.
I can say this after my time at Cloudbridge, ‘I am deeply thankful for my time there and I would like to recommend such an experience to you! Thanks to all the people I met in Cloudbridge, who make this project so great and my time unforgettable.’ ” – Fabian Konopka, Germany (Cloudbridge Volunteer, 2015)
