About the Volunteer Program at Chiricahua National Monument

Our volunteers are "Very Important People" and provide many hours of work for which we are grateful. We thank you for your interest in our volunteer opportunities.

Location: Chiricahua National Monument is located four miles east of the junction of Arizona Highways 186 and 181. Southeastern Arizona is an exciting area where opportunities to explore the natural and cultural history of the area abound all year. Our busiest season is from January to April when temperatures are mild. Summers are warmer with temperatures in the 90s, but cooling to the 60s at night after spectacular afternoon "monsoon" thunderstorms. Once the rains begin in July, the grasslands and oak woodlands become lush and green.

Opportunities and Application: After you have reviewed the volunteer opportunities available at Chiricahua National Monument, please complete the application and mail it to:

Coatimundi

Chiricahua National Monument is home to many coati-mundi. Because the Chiricahua mountain range is situated at a biological cross-roads, species from Mexico's Sierra Madres make their way north. They are trapped here in our ‘sky-islands,’ though, by ‘seas’ of desert which they cannot cross.
