About the workproject

We need 10 volunteers

We have 700hectares in conservation. Over1650 acres. Waterfalls, river and spectacular view, we are located the mountains south central pacific side near Quepos, Costa Rica. We are trying to create a place where the Wildlife come first...not an adventure park..install cameras to help with animal inventory ..renew trails and make certain changes to encourage bee, butterfly,bird migration, etc. We will be building possibly in the near future.. I came from Alaska 30 years ago and have found I am not able to complete my dreams by myself..I have done alot but not enough....

I AM MARRIED HAVE NO CHILDREN AND LIVE FOR this reserve..I have a windshieldrepair shop in san jose to support the reserve. MY GOALS ARE TO SPEND THE REST OF MY LIFE PROTECTING THIS MOUNTAIN AND THE AJOINING AREAS. WE HAVE AN ASSOCIATION CALLED PRO NARA WHICH I AM PRESIDENT MADE UP OF NEIGHBORS AND INTERESTED PERSONS NON PROFIT. When not working or in the reserve I spend time with others doing similar projects in the country, educating demonstrating a better way of living, hopefully taking better care of resources and waste.
