Two Volunteers photographing petroglyphs
Members of the Petroglyph Inventory crew (1994-2001) conducted a formal inventory of the petroglyph images throughout the monument.


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.

Volunteer opportunities are available staffing the visitor center. If you enjoy meeting people from all over the world and like to help visitors make the most out of their visit to Albuquerque and the monument, then this is an opportunity for you.

We are also currently recruiting for trail watch volunteers. If you enjoy hiking trails and interpreting park resources to visitors as well as also monitoring park resources, then this is the opportunity for you.

If interested in either opportunity, please call the Petroglyph National Monument Volunteer Coordinator at (505) 263-0074 or email us at:
