Legends of the Ergun river
Description: The camp is organized in cooperation with a local environmental NGO “Arbagar” which is struggling for the nature preservation and conservation of archeological monuments in Zabaikalskiy Krai (south-east of Russia). The staff of this NGO managed to create a Natural Reserve and now put a lot of efforts to its development.
Volunteers will help with manual environmental and archeological errands. They will also have a chance to discover new places according to ancient maps found on petroglyphs.
