North to Alaska! Join our first volunteer trip to Alaska and experience the allure of this big land known for its vast forests, spectacular glaciers, and exciting wildlife sightings. Our trip begins in Juneau, in the nation’s largest national forest, where we will participate in volunteer projects next to the stunning Mendenhall Glacier. Then northward we go to Skagway on a ferry through the deepest fjord in North America, following the route of the Gold Rush of 1898.
The Galapagos Islands attract visitors from around the world who want to see this unique and prolific ecosystem. Situated on the Equator under the tropical sun, yet bathed for much of the year by the cool waters of the Humboldt and Cromwell currents, the archipelago was formed by mid-ocean volcanic eruptions, and was never in contact with a continental land mass.
Towering 1500 feet above the raging Urubamba River in Peru’s Andean highlands, the royal retreat and sacred center of Machu Picchu — now considered one of the Seven New Wonders of the World — is spectacular by any measure. Help protect this amazing site. Join Conservation Volunteers International Program, in cooperation with REI Adventures, as we work alongside park rangers on critical conservation projects including archaeological restoration and trail maintenance.
The Romans named Scotland “Caledonia.” The name comes from an early Celtic word meaning “strong” or “hard,” an accurate description of the rugged and wet terrain of the Scottish Highlands. Once heavily forested, today forests cover only about one percent of their original acreage. Fortunately, the environmental movement in Scotland — the birthplace of John Muir — is growing.
The crown jewel of Chile’s national parks and an International Biosphere Reserve, Patagonia’s Torres del Paine is considered one of the world’s greatest wildernesses. Join Conservation Volunteers International Program, in cooperation with REI Adventures, as we work alongside park rangers on critical conservation projects including trail maintenance and habitat restoration.
