Stewart L. Udall Parks in Focus® Program
Get Involved – Volunteer with Us
Parks in Focus® relies on dedicated volunteers to assist with its year-round programming in
Tucson as well as with its summer and satellite activities in
Grand Canyon, and
Volunteers include students, professional photographers, retired educators, and everyone in between. Parks in Focus® volunteers share a
passion for introducing youth to our Nation’s public lands and play a critical role in program operations.
Meet some of our current volunteers here.
Accompany Parks in Focus® team members on outings and work directly with our youth participants. Activity assistants help our team
implement outings, handle logistics, prepare meals, lead games and activities, and document trips through photo and video.
Volunteers can also support behind-the-scenes with tasks such as gear maintenance, photo management, data entry, multimedia projects,
and more. If you have a special skill or talent you’d like to share with the Parks in Focus® team, please let us know!
