Volunteer

Volunteers are the strength and continuity of the ASU Deer Valley Petroglyph Preserve and the core of our daily operations.

As a volunteer, you will participate in the crucial task of preserving and interpreting a valuable archaeological and cultural site. It is through our volunteers that the importance of this place, and the necessity of our mission, is communicated to the general public.

There are numerous benefits to being a volunteer. You will receive training; enjoy a complimentary membership; receive 10% off gift shop merchandise; and attend all-volunteer field trips to rock art and archaeological sites.

Volunteering at the preserve is a great way to meet new people, share your talents and engage your community in the preservation of the past. Join our motivated team and take pride in being part of a vibrant organization.

Please complete our volunteer interest form and our assistant director will contact you directly.
