Volunteer Recruitment, Tuesday May 7th 2013, 6:30pm
Have you ever had an office with the greatest view of San Diego?
As a volunteer at Cabrillo National Monument you can tell all your friends that you do! Learn about the variety of volunteer opportunities at Cabrillo NM by joining us for a volunteer recruitment on Tuesday May 7th, 6:30pm (RSVP required).
Cabrillo National Monument is looking for interested individuals to work with Rangers on conservation projects and educational programming. Volunteering at Cabrillo is a fun way to gain professional experiences, meet new people, provide assistance in research studies, learn new skills, get out of the house, and support the only National Park Service Unit in San Diego.
From the sophomoric student to the retired professional, Cabrillo National Monument has a volunteer opportunity for you. The Monument seeks your help in protecting and educating our rich cultural and natural resources to the Public. Our Recruitment introduces you to the Volunteer-In-Parks program, work assignments at Cabrillo National Monument and the appropriate training need toward achieving your goal. This two hour session begins in the auditorium and ends with a site tour. This tour allows you to get connected and inspired by our unique resources. Journey with a Ranger and get introduced to the sights, smells and sounds of Cabrillo National Monument. Come on out to the Point and discover this beautiful time capsule of San Diego history. Come on up and make this your new office!

Bill Griswold, Artist in Residence at Cabrillo National Monument
Bill Griswold is a free lance fine art photographer who has exhibited many photographs in juried exhibits including the International Exhibition of Photography and the San Diego Nature Exhibit at the San Diego Natural History Museum. He has won photographic awards including first place in the San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy Photo Contest. His photographs of Cabrillo have been published in the book "The Life of Point Loma". His photograph of Manzanar appears in the 2013 Calendar of the National Historic Landmarks. He recently published a photographic children's book entitled "Mother Duck Helps Her Babies" which is available as an iBook.
Over the past 25 years he has developed a collection of over 100 photographs of Cabrillo National Monument. He began this project using a 4x5 view camera with black and white film. He later switched to color film in order to capture the beautiful sunsets and vistas at the Monument. A few years ago he began using a digital camera.
Bill says "Cabrillo National Monument, with its iconic landmarks, dramatic coast and grand views of the Pacific Ocean, is one of the most beautiful places in the National Park System. I am excited about the opportunity to photograph at Cabrillo as Artist-in Residence."
Bill will be Artist in Residence from December 2012 to the end of April 2013.
