A Rocha Netherlands
A Rocha Netherlands was founded in December 2002.
The aim of A Rocha Netherlands is for Dutch Christians to have a stronger involvement in (international) nature conservation and A Rocha projects abroad. During the year ARNL organises a programme of outings, workshops and miscellaneous activities concerned with nature conservation.
A volunteer programme makes it possible for lots of (young) interested people to visit and help with A Rocha projects abroad. This will likely involve helping both with chores around the centre as well as with A Rocha's environmental work.
A Rocha's long term aims include the establishment of a nature conservation centre in the Netherlands, with a similar ethos to A Rocha centres elsewhere.
At the same time, A Rocha Netherlands encourages Christians to care for creation around their own living place. A first local A Rocha group has been formed in the city of Wageningen. In 2005 this group has started with practical conservation work in a nature reserve nearby.
