Red Rock Volunteer Opportunities

Red Rock Volunteer photoThe Red Rock State Park Volunteer program started before the park opened in 1991 and today, volunteers contribute enough hours to equal that of six full-time employees. Our volunteers are needed and greatly appreciated.

Each year in September, 6 four-hour training sessions provide prospective volunteers with information about park philosophy and the local area. Topics include natural sciences, the school environmental education program, maintenance, archaeology, geology and interpretive hikes and tours. After graduation, volunteers then work throughout the park promoting environmental studies, lead programs and activities, assist park staff with maintenance projects, or visitor services. If you would like to learn more about the park volunteer program, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator.

Each Host is required to give 24 hours of service per week, working at our Entry Station and Visitor Center. To inquire about Site Host positions specifically, please contact the Site Host Coordinator. All other Volunteer questions should be addressed to the Volunteer Coordinator.

Oak Creek Canyon Task Force

Red Rock State Park is a member of the Oak Creek Canyon Task Force, a non-profit watershed group with a broad based membership who dedicate themselves to protect and preserve the integrity of Oak Creek and the Canyon environment. It is founded on the principle that a voluntary association of members of the watershed communities, working together to understand both the watershed and each other, best accomplishes its goals and objectives. Oak Creek Canyon and its unique waterway is such a valuable resource that volunteers spend countless hours on projects to keep the Canyon beautiful and its waterways safe for future generations. Learn more by visiting their website.
