VOLUNTEER IN MONGOLIA
 
The Gobi desert in southern Mongolia is growing at an alarming rate.  Desert sands are spreading, not only toward the fertile grasslands and forests to the north, but even as far as Ulaanbaatar, the nation's capitol.  Researchers have predicted that the entire nation of Mongolia is in danger of becoming a desert within the next 25 years.  Truly, this is a global concern, since such a catastrophe would threaten the habitat of countless species of plants and animals, displace millions of Mongolian people and destroy Mongolia's culture and economy. 
Our mission is to help to prevent the sand from moving northward by planting as many trees as possible in Mongolia.  We are a very small group with limited resources.  Every person counts in this noble mission, and your help could make a big difference in preserving the world’s precious environment.  No experience is necessary, just a willingness to come to Mongolia  and physically participate.
