Have you ever dreamed of leading bird talks and discovering what brings people to Arizona from overseas, or assisting with interpretive programs at an 1870s military outpost or ancient Native American ruins? Arizona State Parks welcomes volunteers for one-time projects as well as long-term assignments.
If you live near one of our recreation, historic, or conservation parks, you may choose to be a local Parks Volunteer on a regular basis. Recruitment of community members occurs throughout the year, with volunteer open houses and trainings occuring during busy seasons.
Applications for the Volunteer Program are now accepted online. Apply online now
We encourage all volunteers to stay connected to what's happening in the Arizona State Parks Volunteer Program by signing up for the emailed Volunteer Voice Newsletter. You may also read current and past issues online.
