The volunteers will start as a part of a yearly landscape geological fieldwork Summer school project, next to some 10-15 students Landscape history and cultural geography (RUG Groningen), Earth science (Utrecht University) and Life sciences and archaeology (VU Amsterdam), who are invited by Landscape Management Drenthe. Some local volunteers will also participate in the field work, which is dedicated to research the remains of so called ‘pingos’ - ice mounts and their remnant which were formed during the final stage of the last ice age. The pingo remnants are the result slowly melting icelenses due to climate change which marked a new era in which the current landscape of north-western Europe was formed. After the pingos melted, they left behind a kind of craters which filled with water and in the to be following ages slowly filled with peat. These layers of peat cover a ‘frozen history’, like year rings of a tree, and are to be surveyed with drillings by hand. Secondly, the survey has also as a goal to establish if a certain depression in the landscape actually is a pingo remnant, or possibly a wind blown depression. The survey is led by university staffmembers and a project leader of Landscape Management Drenthe. Apart from the physical research there is also a possibility to work on Oral history, and to try to get some information on the pingo remnant from local habitants. In many cases peat in the pingo remnants has been excavated to serve as fuel. By knowing how much peat was gained, it is possible to determine whether a depression was a pingo remnant or a wind blown depression. In the second week, participants will participate in different activities of nature management making a wilderness path, removing excessive vegetation on heathland, life stock counting, observing badgers, et cetera. Volunteers will also work together with other local people who do voluntary nature work. Both Landscape Management Drenthe, the research team and the rangers of State Forrestry are very supportive and looking forward to host the volunteers in this beautiful area. ‘The Drentsche Aa’ has been nominated most beautiful landscape of the Netherlands.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

Volunteers are expected to bring their own tent, airbed or matrass and sleeping bag. They will stay at the beautiful situated nature campsite Uteringskamp of State Forestry in Schoonloo, which during the first week volunteers will share with the students of the Summer school. Volunteers and students will cook for themselves in a ‘main tent’ which is provided by Landscape Management Drenthe and equipped with all cooking facilities. The campsite is equipped which showers and toilets. Wifi is available in the ‘excursion barn’ on the workplace of State Forestry next to the campsite. This barn can also be used as working facility and shelter in case of heavy rain. Bicycles will we provided, this will be the transportation method to the various worksites.

Lage und Freizeit

of course, the camp leaders and partner organisation will encourage volunteers to put forward their own ideas for a recreational program, but activities will also be organised by the rangers, e.g. a 'mudwalking' tour on the ‘bottom’ of the Wadden area; a Unesco World Heritage Site because of the world’s largest area of intertidal sand and mudflats. A unique experience! Other activities during the week can be swimming, bicycling, visiting the flourishing city of Groningen or the Westerbork transit camp (where Anne Frank was prisoned), museum villages Orvelte, the Hunebed Center, an evening walk in the wilderness. Besides, volunteers are being encouraged to lay contact with the local community for a cultural exchange. Usually, volunteers are invited to have a dinner at local residents’ homes. Drenthe is known for its ‘noaberschap’ (neighbourship).

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The ‘Drentsche Aa’ area is a varied old cultural landscape, shaped by age old interplay of agriculture and nature, including the deformation of land by ice in the Saalien ice age and lot of erosion and sedimentation in the last/weichselian ice age. The ‘Drentsche Aa’ is also the name of the stream that meanders through this area and creates a typical landscape that is declared National Park. It includes 16 authentic villages. Partnering in this project are ‘Landscape Management Drenthe’, a regional based charity which focuses on preservation of landscape and nature and government commissioned ‘Dutch State Forestry’, which owns and manages a large part of nature reserves in the Netherlands. Besides, a research team with students & scolars of several Dutch universities will be present during the first week of the project in which volunteers we will take part in a landscape geological Summer school, which is led by universitairy staff members and Landscape Management Drenthe. The field research is part of the so called Pingo program.

Arbeit

The volunteers will unearth the inside of the tower to make it accessible for the public. Work will be supervised by an archaeologist. The work will also include the examination of the ground conditions with the help of special instruments like sieves,...Please be aware that you have to work a lot in the dirt and that you will get dirty and dusty!

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will be accommodated in the historic „Oberer Torturm“ (upper gate tower) that was built in the 14th century as the Northern entrance in the city’s fortification. The tower is renovated, so there are a kitchen, three separate dormitories, and sanitary facilities you can use; however, you can still feel the medieval spirit of the place. There is one shower and bathroom in the accommodation that you can use, and some additional showers and sanitary facilities in the school building next door.

Lage und Freizeit

Wolframs-Eschenbach is a small medieval town with an historic centre that is still completely is surrounded by a well-preserved fortification. It is located only 50 kilometres from Nuremberg and close to the Franconian Lake District. This area with several great lakes was created as a result of one of Germany's largest water-management projects and is a very popular touristic area.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

We are looking for a campleader in our project in Wolframs-Eschenbach! Wolframs-Eschenbach is a small medieval town in Franconia. It's the second time the community is going to invite a Workcamp in order to help them with archaeological excavations at their city wall. They are very happy and excited to have international help around again. Under the supervision of a local expert the group will help digging out the inside of a medieval tower (that has been filled up in the past) down to its original level. As a team leader, you engage with the whole group in a voluntary work project, taking responsibility and learning new skills at the same time. You coordinate your group's life and work: When do you work? Who cooks? Who cleans? What leisure options are there? At the beginning of the project you initiate introductory games, mediate in case of conflicts and keep an eye on everybody being involved and satisfied. In advance, you get in touch with the project partner on site and with the international group and collect first ideas for leisure activities. Experience in working with youth groups is an advantage, but not a requirement for leading an international work camp.
