Review for Conservation Volunteers International Program, Inc., Orinda, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My 1st participation with CVIP was last year (late May 2018) in Alaska for 11 days. I loved every minute of each day - the work, the shared meals with new friends, helping one another, laughing with one another all the time, learning from excellent team guides and the amazing forrest service staff as together we waded in streams to clear away fallen limbs, removing piles and piles of sticks and limbs along the trails collected over the months from work done to breakdown beaver damns, helping restore hiking trails, chopping wood with an axe and even learning how to operate a log splitter. Our group worked so well together - young and old, working skilled professionals and retired team members - all becoming friends along the way. I still share communications with several team members. I've registered for my 2nd CVIP to Machu Picchu this fall!
