Join the Park Volunteer Team

Many people show their support by volunteering at the monument. Volunteers have removed exotic plants, collected and recorded data with researchers, were campground hosts and visitor center support. Volunteer assignments vary depending on the positions available, your skill and experience, and the number of weeks you are able to commit. Volunteers are needed the most during late fall through early spring.

2012 annual pass

Paying your fees or purchasing a pass

Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument participates in the Congressionally authorized Federal Recreation Lands Enhancement Act. Under this program, parks keep 80% of all fees collected; the remaining 20% will be deposited in a special account to be used in parks where fees are not collected. Funds generated by the fees are used to accomplish projects the parks have been unable to fund through yearly Congressional allocations. That means that when you pay your fees or buy a pass your money goes directly back into the park.

 

Monetary Donations

Monetary donations are accepted and directly benefit the monument. Funds will be used for projects that protect the cultural and natural resources, safety and educational programs, and visitor services. If desired, those making a donation may specify a use for their money. For example, if you or someone you know has been involved in a search and rescue (SAR), donations may be made to directly support the park's SAR program. Other ways to make donations include:

  • make a gift to honor or remember someone or a special event
  • request donations in lieu of gifts
  • support a specific park fund or program
  • leave a gift of property
  • initiate a planned gift such as a bequest or living trust

If you would like to donate to a specific project or to discuss a donation please contact the Superintendent's office at 520-387-6849 ext. 7500 or e-mail us.

Donations can be made in person at the Kris Eggle Visitor Center donation box or may be made by check or money order made payable to "National Park Service" and mailed to:
