Donate water, donate life!

Join us to do some trekking with meaning. As you probably know, the sclerophyll forest of Chile ́s central area has seriously been affected by a very long drought and increasing temperatures. Beautiful trees that used to provide shade, maintain proper humidity and temperature are rapidly declining. And there is so little a single individual can do...

Having said this, there are actually many ideas on how we can collectively help. Some parks have installed water stations. These are filled with trekkers' extra water to maintain some key trees along the trail.

Join us to the beautiful cerro Manquehue, where not only you will be rewarded by a fantastic view at the top and have great conversations with other Internations members but also help maintain the green in this beautiful trail.
