Public support for our National Park Service lands is critical in ensuring that these special places will be preserved for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations.

There are many ways for you to contribute your support from volunteering personal time, participating in the Artist in Residence program, or shopping in the cooperating association bookstore, where purchases help fund educational programs.


Guadalupe Mountains accepts applications from volunteers throughout the year to assist with all aspects of park management. Learn more about our volunteer opportunities.


The Artist-In-Residence Program offers professional writers, composers, and all visual and performing artists the opportunity to pursue their particular art form while surrounded by the inspiring landscape of the park. Learn more about the program...

Desert coyotes are fairly common in the park

Desert coyotes feed on delicacies such as crickets, quail, cactus fruits, rodents, and carrion. Weighing half as much as coyotes elsewhere, they have shorter, thinner, and paler fur which not only blends with the barren landscape, but also helps dissipate heat.
