Ongoing - Phoenix Park Steward Program - Parks Stewards staff the visitor center weekly, in two hour shifts, on Saturday and Sunday afternoons.

Occasional -- Corporate or Community Groups - A great opportunity for a corporate team or community group to volunteer at the Papago Visitor Center for an afternoon. A Park Ranger or Park Steward will provide the group with an orientation before they volunteer. Groups may choose to focus on sharing a specific educational message, like Leave No Trace, Take a Hike. Do it Right., history, flora & fauna, park history, hike to Hole-in-a-Rock, and more! Or the group may focus on general information about the park. We would love to work with your team, scout troop, club, or community group!
