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 effort in making Petroglyph National Monument the place it is, and helping us move toward what it can become.

Volunteer opportunities are posted and available via the Volunteer.gov website. If you enjoy meeting people from all over the world and like to help visitors make the most out of their visit to National Parks nationwide, then this is an opportunity for you.

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 contacts listed below:

Jim Sattler, City of Albuquerque Open Space (505) 452-5213
Bill Pentler, City of Albuquerque Open Space (505) 452-5222
