National Park Service volunteers at Gila Clif Dwellings National Monument are essential, active, and valued members of the park staff. They serve visitor and park needs every day. Volunteers are needed year round.
Our volunteer staff works giving guided programs at the cliff dwellings, assisting visitors through sharing area and monument information, staffing the Gila Visitor Center and bookstore, and performing maintenance projects. There are no campground host positions at the monument.
Volunteers are asked to make a minimum commitment of three or four months, 32 hours per week. The monument provides training and housing if required - private dorm rooms with shared bathrooms or RV pads with full hookups. A small apartment for couples may also be available.
For more information regarding Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument volunteer program, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator at 575-536-9461 or email@example.com.
