Firstly there are summer projects. These are two week long volunteer camps at different locations around Lake Baikal which involve trail building and reconstruction, construction of small bridges, resting places and other necessary infrastructure, gathering of garbage, etc. The idea is to create an infrastructure for ecological tourism around Lake Baikal and offer an alternative to industrial development in this pristine part of Siberia. The trails are also used as part of the environmental education program run by GBT.
Secondly there are opportunities for volunteers to stay for longer periods. Helping to volunteer in the office and contribute to the Environmental Education Programs.
