As with all National Parks and Monuments, we owe a huge debt of gratitude to the people who volunteer their time and efforts to making Petroglyph National Monument the place it is, and helping us move toward what it CAN become.

Sandia Prep Clean

Students from Sandia Prep participate in an organized clean-up in August, 2011.


All volunteer clean-up projects must be officially coordinated and cleared with either the National Park Service or with the City of Albuquerque Open Space Division. This procedure will ensure that all projects comply with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and will also adequately protect the natural and cultural resources as well as the safety of all participants. For more information on this process please call one of the offices listed below.

As of April 2015, volunteer opportunities are either staffing the visitor center or trail patrol/watch. If you are interested in either of these opportunities, please call:

Petroglyph National Monument Volunteer Coordinator Diane Souder at (505) 899-0205 x230
City of Albuquerque Open Space Volunteer Coordinator Jolynn Maestas at (505) 452-5207
