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 February 2017, volunteer opportunities are available staffing the visitor center. If you are interested in this opportunity, please call:

Petroglyph National Monument Visitor Center Volunteer Coordinator Diane Souder at (505) 899-0205 x230
