The Arizona Site Steward Program is sponsored by the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) and is an organization of volunteers that aid the public land managers of Arizona by visiting prehistoric and historic archaeological and paleontological sites on public land and reporting any destruction or vandalism that they note. In addition to this site monitoring, Site Stewards are also active in public education through outreach activities. Site Stewards are selected, trained, and certified by the SHPO and the Archaeology Advisory Commission. Learn More.
The Southwest Archaeology Team, Inc. (SWAT) is affiliated with the Mesa Southwest Museum and is a group of volunteers who have the following goals: to promote stewardship and conservation of our archaeological heritage; to promote the stabilization and preservations of historic and prehistoric sites; to have an emergency archaeological crew to survey or excavate sites that might be lost if volunteers do not assist with the project; to maintain a membership of archaeologists to supervise the documentation and analysis of the archaeological discoveries; and to involve the public and provide educational opportunities for adults and children.

The Arizona Archaeological Society (AAS) was founded in 1964 to promote and increase public awareness regarding our national archaeological and cultural resources. The goal of the AAS is to protect these antiquities by discouraging exploitation of archaeological resources. AAS has a nationally known training program to train and certify avocational archaeologists who can then work with professional archaeologists. AAS also conducts summer field schools with professionals using research, excavations, and rock art recording techniques. Learn more .
