About the project: Help the environment!

Welcome to Liminka, nature-enthusiast’s paradise in Northern Ostrobothnia, Finland! In this project a team of ten (10) volunteers will work in versatile tasks to improve the state of nature as well as participating in activities to make the living environment more sustainable and vital. Volunteers will also have the opportunity learn both traditional and new ways to take care of and protect nature.

The seaside municipality of Liminka is known for its active birdlife: Liminka Bay is the most famous bird wetland in Finland. Additionally, the municipality has a long history: many traditional ways to take care of nature are still cherished. On the other hand, Liminka has been awarded as the most inventive place in the country, so new ways to act are composed constantly.

– building roundpole fences and other sustainable structures
