  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.

Nez Perce National Historical Park is seeking volunteers to help serve as site stewards at the Heart of the Monster park site near Kamiah, ID. A site steward is someone who preferably lives close to the area and is willing to help with general upkeep of the site. The volunteers will also help as ambassadors for the site as they may interact with visitors to the site.


Nez Perce National Historical Park is a non-traditional national park in that it consists of 38 sites, which together tell the story of the Nimiipuu (Nez Perce). These sites are spread over much of the traditional homeland of the Nimiipuu in present-day Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington. According to the Nimiipuu creation story, Iceye’ye (Coyote) killed a large monster along the Clearwater River near present day Kamiah, Idaho, thus creating different tribes in the region, including the Nimiipuu. A rock formation in the area is said to represent the heart of the monster described in the legend. It is sacred to the Nimiipuu people. For more information on this site, visit Heart of the Monster History - Nez Perce National Historical Park (U.S. National Park Service) (nps.gov) .


Time commitment is flexible with the volunteer's availability: time may range from a couple hours a week to two-three days a month.
