Preserve Park Steward Volunteer

Become a Preserve Park Steward and help make a difference!

The Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department is seeking volunteers who can help monitor, protect, and maintain over 35,000 acres of preserve lands. With a limited number of Park Rangers on hand to manage these public lands, becoming a Park Steward is a way to "give back" to these beautiful areas that so many enjoy. Park Stewards are a valuable part of our conservation team.

There are many ways in which you can become a member of the Park Steward team. From being a trail monitor, to maintaining trailhead gates; from assisting with litter pick up, to providing educational information to park users. Park Stewards can even perform their duties while using their own personal equipment such as a bicycle or horse! They also receive identification gear, field training, and continuous support from park staff. We invite YOU to share in our commitment to caring for YOUR Desert Parks & Mountain Preserves.
