Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers Needed

Volunteers are needed to help the Arizona Trail Association with an important promotional project. Duties include placing stickers on maps and volunteer work can be conducted from your very own home or during regular normal business hours at the ATA office in Tucson. The National Geographic Visitor Center has donated 100,000 maps to the ATA, and we need to place one sticker on each map. If you want to take responsibility for one box (675 maps) or more, that would help tremendously. These maps are distributed around the state, and are the ATA’s primary promotional printed material. Help increase awareness of the Arizona Trail!

If you can help, please email .

Trail work is a great way to be a part of the Arizona Trail and also meet like-minded people. Please visit the Calendar of Events page and check out the work events.

You can also contact one of the many trail stewards who oversee the Arizona Trail’s 43 passages. They can always use experienced and non-experienced workers. With some experience, you might want to become a passage steward yourself. For more information about the Segment Steward program check out the Segment Steward Information page.
