The Site Steward Program 

The Arizona Site Steward Program is an organization of volunteers, in partnership with public land managers of Arizona (US Forest Service, AZ State Lands, BLM, and other jurisdictions), whose members are selected, trained and certified by Arizona State Parks & Trails (ASPT). The chief objective of the Stewards Program is to deter the theft of antiquities and report to the land managers any destruction or vandalism of prehistoric and historic archaeological and paleontological sites in Arizona through site monitoring.

NEW!  February 24, 2022 * DUE TO OVERWHELMING INTEREST IN THE PROGRAM, WE HAVE CURRENTLY REACHED VOLUNTEER CAPACITY AT THIS MOMENT AND THE APPLICATION PORTAL IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED.

But, if you would like to sign up on a waiting list please send an email to sitesteward@azstateparks.gov.  Please provide your full name, telephone number and a list of the regions where you would like to do your volunteer work.  You may list up to two (2) regions.  Click on the button below to view the 25 different regions on the Arizona Site Steward Regional Map. 

Also, if the great outdoors doesn't call to you the Site Steward Program also needs volunteers for community outreach and administrative duties.  There's something for everyone!  Contact the program at sitesteward@azstateparks.gov
