Volunteers

Volunteers are enthusiastic and active people voluntarily and freely engaged in various kinds of socially useful activity. Lots of different organizations involve volunteers when they need assistance in a diverse fields of activity.

Today it is a very common practice to attract volunteers to protected areas. They are involved in design, improvement, observations of nature, and even conduct sightseeing tours. In return, volunteers get a lot of vivid impressions, knowledge of nature, opportunities to see interesting and unique places, get acquainted with the work of environmental agencies and socialize with new people.

The first volunteers of Polistovsky Reserve participated in the research, they came to the Reserve in 2003. They helped to lay down and describe sample areas on the burned territory remaining after the great fire of 2002.  Scince then volunteers come to Polistovsky Reservenot only to help employees of the scientific department but also to participate in other, very diverse, activities. From our side we are ready to offer free accommodation on the basis of the Reserve and an opportunity to get acquainted with the raised bogs visiting our ecological routes.
