Stewardship In Action

A volunteer interpretive park ranger orients visitors at the Cliff Dweller Canyon trailhead.

National Park Service volunteers at Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument are essential, active, and valued members of the park staff. Volunteers serve visitor and park needs every day and are needed year round.


  • Lead guided tours of the cliff dwellings
  • Assist visitors by sharing information
  • Staff Gila Visitor Center and Western National Parks Association store
  • Perform maintenance projects
  • Campground host

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.

For more information on current volunteer opportunities contact us at or apply at for Interpretative Volunteer or Maintenance Volunteer positions.
