Volunteers for Nature
Thanks to a volunteer project open to everyone, the “National Park of Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise” gives to each of us the opportunity to address an unique experience: living and working in contact with a natural environment, through which you can stop, think and be aware of those individual and social behaviours which place the human being in the right role in the ecosystem Nature. 

Participants will be engaged in monitoring, education and environmental interpretation, contacts with the public, television and photojournalism, cultural animation, simple maintenance of facilities and trails, assistance and information to visitors or cleaning.

All with the supervision and coordination
of personnel of the Park. 


Every year the volunteers grow, 
not only in number but, above all, 
in the specialty and passion with which 
support and motivate their efforts. 

Anyone who can spend a lifetime in the mountains,
in perfect self-sufficiency and serenity 
in one of Park shelters, 

 has the chance to take part in a program with other people motivated and interested in the defense of flora and fauna, working with operators, researchers, technicians in the various activities of prevention, control, education, maintenance, support, paths activity.
